Finnovation Africa: Kenya 2018 - A Powerful Purpose

The Digital Transformation of Banking - Driving Constructive Economic Outcomes from the FinTech Ecosystem in Africa

FinTech Impact for Africa: Re-Imagining Banking & Financial Services

Africa’s financial sector is on the verge of yet another expansive revolution. The rapid growth of FinTech on the continent is driving both the disruption and leapfrogging of legacy systems and is further accelerating the digital transformation of financial services across Africa. The major existing banks are rapidly ramping-up their own innovative approaches to meet the financial needs of under-served markets across the continent.

FinTech players are increasingly becoming an important part of the fabric of Africa’s financial services industry. In addition, the leading banks on the continent are now harnessing innovative technology and are also collaborating with FinTech start-ups & innovators to better connect with under-served consumers, improve financial inclusion and provide a platform to scale much faster.

Innovation in Financial Services: A Dynamic Event Tailor-Made for a Cutting-Edge Industry

Finnovation Africa: Kenya 2018 is a very different kind of event, a complete reboot, for a very different kind of industry. Deconstructed and shorn of all the usual, tired formats of the traditional convention and built from the ground up as a genuinely new event that is a ground-breaking in its focus as it is in its format and aspiring to be as innovative and transformatiove as the dynamic FinTech market it serves.

Combining a highly innovative and interactive event format with world-class speakers and more than 300 carefully selected participants, Finnovation Africa: Kenya 2018, to be held at the Radisson Blu Nairobi on the 31st of May 2018, will tackle the most pressing questions for the progress of FinTech and the positive transformation of banking in Africa, providing a platform for all stakeholders to engage in creating the future of financial services on the continent – from established banking powerhouses to FinTech start-ups.
