The global financial technology (Fintech) market is growing rapidly and expected to reach a market valuation of approximately US$324billion 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 environments. This webinar is 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 analysing its exciting future.
The event will be attended by a broad spectrum of FinTech companies and professionals worldwide; registration is available for free via https://www.knowledgeinnovations.com/fintechafrica/
