With deepened Fintech penetration in Africa, unique solutions are springing up and accelerating the growth of commerce on the continent. From 02 – 04 November 2022, Cape Town will host African and global fintech stakeholders at the 8th Africa Fintech Summit to discuss these innovations, and paths to growth, as well as provide substantial collaboration opportunities.
The In-person/Online event is set to hold at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) and looks to welcome delegates from Africa, and around the world.
#AFTSCapeTown2022 comes on the back of a successful AFTS edition in Washington, D.C, earlier in the year.
