Youth in financial tech space urged to partner


Mr. Darryl Mawutor Abraham of Taptap Send Growth Director for Africa – an international remittance firm operating in over 25 countries of Africa and Asia – has called on entrepreneurs, in particular the youth in financial technology, to cultivate networking and partnerships for the success and growth of their businesses.

He said: “Opportunities are leveraged when entrepreneurs partner with like-minded people; and the global space’s new order necessitates that young men and women with ambitions in the digital and e-transact space must come together and join hands for progress”.

Mr. Abraham, with over 18 years of experience in creating, building and scaling businesses in the UK Fin Tech sector, made this assertion at the 10th edition of the TECH IN GHANA fair, which opened at the Accra Digital Centre yesterday.

The 2-day high-tech-level conference is a special-event facility with contemporary, professional atmosphere for leaders, investors and influencers in the financial digital space; aimed among others to strengthen the bourgeoning Tech ecosystem in Ghana.

Mr. Abraham was speaking on ‘Leveraging partnerships to drive growth in the Fintech space’.

The 2022 TECH IN GHANA fair is jointly sponsored by Taptap Send, a digital first electronic money transfer firm with operations in Ghana and other developing countries in Africa and Asia.
Mr.  Abraham, who describes himself as a passionate Ghanaian, said according to World Bank statistics Ghana is the second-highest receiver of remittances in sub-Saharan Africa, second to Nigeria; and that an estimated US$4.5billion was sent to Ghana in 2021 – which was equivalent to 6 percent of the country’s GDP.

He said Taptap Send is in Ghana with the unique intent to tap the untapped potential of transferring and receiving funds from relatives, friends, business partners and well-wishers with ease and comfort – charging no fees, with the most convenient user experience – and is also ready for partnerships.

TECH IN GHANA is held twice each year, one in Ghana and one in the UK, which brings together players and major multi-national brands in the digital and technical ecosystem for the exchange of knowledge and networking for growth of that industry sector.
