Business Entrepreneurship Social Impact
We’re excited to announce that Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, is the host city for the 2019 Africa Fintech Summit (AFTS). As Africa’s fastest growing economy and the continent’s second most populous country, Ethiopia is at the precipice of unprecedented change. Thanks to extensive infrastructure investments across the last two decades, an ambitious structural reform agenda, partial privatization of the national telecom monopoly and the addition of two new providers, imminent liberalization in the financial sector, and a clear embrace of innovation as an economic driver, Ethiopia presents unparalleled opportunities for investment, entrepreneurship, and innovation in fintech.
The Africa Fintech Summit will gather disruptors, tech and finance professionals, regulators, and investors from across Africa and the world in Africa’s political capital, Addis Ababa. Join us on November 21, 2019.
The AFTS brings the issues, entrepreneurs, and opportunities revolutionizing finance in Africa to the world’s stage. Transforming lives and economies, unleashing innovation, and propelling an upsurge of financial inclusion. Supported by an advisory board of thought leaders and fintech pioneers, the AFTS is a unique space where ideas are explored, investments mobilized, and collaborations formed across sectors and geographies.
