The Africa Fintech Festival (AFF) is gathering momentum and fast becoming a global phenomenon as notable stakeholders are in high spirit as they partner with this emergent technological brand in Africa.

The much anticipated National Fintech Conference, rebranded as Africa Fintech Festival has recorded a lot of success stories, breaking new frontiers in technological and financial spheres in Nigeria and beyond.

The event is billed to be the trail blazer and a think tank in the area of advancing African indigenous technological innovations and initiatives aimed at solving peculiar African challenges with African home-grown solutions.

The first edition of the conference debuted in Nigeria in 2017, and led to the formation of Fintech Association of Nigeria FintechNGR (www.fintechng.org) as a response to the need to foster collaboration amongst sectoral components in order to enhance transactional, regulatory and beneficial policy framework to drive innovation rather than stifling it.

Subsequently, the second edition which held in January 25 & 26, 2018 focused on engendering cross border collaboration, policy aggregation and promotion of indigenous solutions as exportable goods across the continent which led to the establishment of Africa Fintech Network (AFN). The AFN is a conglomerate of National Fintech Associations from across Africa all working towards the creation of ‘one-market’ Fintech platform for Africa.

The ecosystem event is organized by Fintech Associates Ltd, Fintech Association of Nigeria, and FintechStage, supported by Chartered Institute of Bankers of Nigeria, Nigerian Insurer Association and Chartered Institute of Stockbrokers.

A number of global brands have also found the Festival worthy of partnering with, such organizations include; Qatar Development Bank, Bank of Industry, AFREXIMBANK, EcoBank, Access Bank, Fidelity Bank, EFInA, INLAKS, Soft Alliance and Resources Limited, VISA, Microsoft, ORACLE and other global tech giants are participating and showcasing their creative and market enhancing products and services.

Dr Akinwumi Adesina, President of Africa Development Bank, AfDB who is a strategic partner with FINTECHNGR will deliver a remark as part of events commemorating the commencement of this Conference.

Other notable partners include IMF, UNECA, and the UK-DFID who has affirmed its commitment to host the inaugural meeting of the newly created UK-Africa Fintech investment Group being co-chaired by the Lord Mayor of London and Prime Minister Ambassador for Fintech as part of Fintech Festival events.

Attendees representing over 20 African countries will also participate in the inauguration of the African Fintech Network AFN and announcing AFN collaborations with ASEAN Fintech Networks and Middle East North Africa MENA Fintech Association. All these will form part of the highlights of the event.

The time is now to put Nigeria and indeed Africa on the global map in the areas of technology: robotics, artificial intelligence, trans-border trade, human capacity building etc.

Don’t be left out of this unique opportunity in learning, sharing and networking your way to advancing your business objectives.
