Theme: Mapping the African Fintech Landscape

As an unconference, we envision open dialogue and collaboration in which the attendees drive the agenda, surfacing the realities, challenges, and discussions that matter most to them. This year's theme is "Mapping the African Fintech Landscape." The programming is fluid but supported by three subthemes to organize the breakout discussions. These tracks are:

  1. Creating valuable partnerships between fintech innovators
  2. Building business to business (B2B) partnerships with financial service providers
  3. Creating consumer trust in digital financial services and products
