The Cashless Africa Conference 2017 is a platform for financial services supply side actors to share their innovation, rethink their current models and gain valuable market insight of the African digital financial services market.
The Cashless Africa Conference 2017 will comprise three components:
(A) CONFERENCE – The two days of inspiring presentations, interactive sessions and networking opportunities with more than 40 thought leaders covering eight sessions, 24+ hours of advanced content, networking and more than 250+ official delegates. The multi-format conference will feature presentations, panel discussions, demos, networking, and exhibitions.
(B) FINHACKTON – In March 2017, the FinTech community will be invited to collaborate and co-create solutions to compelling financial services challenges across Africa with specific challenges solicited from the market demand-side. Teams will develop market-ready solutions to these problems, and the selected teams will present their solutions at the demo session during the conference.
(C) CASHLESSAFRICA CHAMPION AWARDS – The CashlessAfrica Champion awards will recognize innovative Fintechs, banks, mobile network operators, financial services providers that have been implemented in Africa or elsewhere with the potential of impacting positively on the African continent.
Fintechs empowered by technology are laying a claim to the market share that has traditionally been a stronghold of the incumbents. It’s not just Fintechs but competitors from other sectors in a bid to diversify, have continued to leverage technology to tapping into the financial services sector. The technology is boosting productivity, competitiveness, resilience and growth with new financial services business models, which is creating challenges for both regulators and market players.
The CashlessAfrica conference will not only highlight the challenges and opportunities in the Fintech space in Africa but will provide knowledge and networking platform that will bring the African Fintech industry at par with its counterparts across the globe. The summit will empower stakeholders to devise strategies that will help them keep pace with the evolving financial eco-system in this digital age.
