The AFTS is accepting nominations for its Alpha Expo program.  We’ll be giving 10 fintech startups the opportunity to exhibit for free and engage with venture capital investors and fintech leaders from around the world at the AFTS Addis Ababa on November 21

The 2019 Africa Fintech Summit (AFTS) will be hosted in Addis Ababa. 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, and imminent liberalisation of the telecom and finance sectors, Ethiopia presents unparalleled opportunities for 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.
