Finnovation Africa: Ethiopia 2019 - 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

As a result of their potent blend of trail-blazing technology and disruptive innovation, FinTech players have the ability to accelerate the digital transformation of financial services in Africa and, in turn, further spur the major existing banks to rapidly ramp-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 to meet market needs and are also collaborating with FinTech start-ups 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: Ethiopia 2019 is a very different kind of event, a complete re-boot, 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 as ground-breaking in its focus as it is in its format - and aspiring to be as innovative and transformative 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: Ethiopia 2019, to be held at the Radisson Blu Addis Ababa on the 11th of March 2019, will tackle the most pressing questions for the progress of FinTech and the positive and profitable 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.
