“I haven’t been to a more impactful event geared towards facilitating stakeholder conversations, investments, and policy frameworks around the fintech space in Africa in a long time.

I would highly recommend the AFTS to anyone in this space.” – Olu Oyinsan, VP of Investments, Ingressive Capital.

“The 2019 Africa Fintech Summit was a great avenue to address and subsequently have conversations with great minds focused on the growth of fintech in Africa.” – Jim Ovia, Founder and Chairman, Zenith Bank.
