Some key leaders in the African fledgling industry would speak at this landmark event to provide rare insights into emerging trends in Africa’s Fintech ecosystem.

Meanwhile, the global financial technology (Fintech) market is growing rapidly and is expected to reach a market valuation of approximately $324 billion by 2026, growing at a compound annual rate of about 23.41% over the forecast period 2021-2026.

The Fintech space in Africa is mirroring this global trend and growing at extraordinary rates, with several exciting innovations, especially within the digital payment space, driven by mobile money accounting for some of this growth.

Although the COVID-19 pandemic brought about significant challenges and disruptions to many FinTech operations on the continent, the sector is on a strong growth path, powered by innovations and growing market demand led by a ballooning consumer segment.

This growth path is not without challenges, such as regulatory, low-level financing options for start-ups, slow pace of human capital development, especially in machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI), lack of sustained intercontinental collaborations, and challenging business environment.

The upcoming webinar is however coming at an optimum time when there is an urgent need to discuss trends in the Fintech sector, what challenges Africa’s FinTech sector is experiencing, and analyzing its exciting future.

The event would be attended by a broad spectrum of FinTech companies and professionals worldwide; registration is available for free via https://www.knowledgeinnovations.com/fintechafrica/
