The premiere global initiative dedicated to fintech in Africa is coming to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

Twice a year, the Africa Fintech Summit (AFTS) brings the issues, entrepreneurs, and opportunities revolutionising finance in Africa to the world stage - each April in Washington, DC and each November in a different African city. We're excited to annouce Addis Ababa as the 2019 AFTS host city!


Ethiopia, Africa’s fastest growing economy and the continent’s second most populous country, is at the precipice of unprecedented change thanks to extensive investments, ambitious reforms, and a clear embrace of innovation as an economic driver. The AFTS Addis will gather innovators, investors, and operators from around the world to explore these unprecedented opportunities. The program includes high-level keynotes, lively roundtables, investor missions, awards, a pitch competition, and plenty of opportunities to network and explore Africa’s vibrant political capital, Addis Ababa.


Join us on November 21, 2019!
