Africa Fintech Summit
Leave Your Mark in the African Fintech Sector
Supported by an advisory board of thought leaders and fintech pioneers, the AFTS is a unique space where ideas are explored, investments mobilized, and collaborations formed across sectors and geographies.
Twice a year, we bring the issues, entrepreneurs, and opportunities revolutionizing finance in Africa to the world’s stage. The AFTS takes place in Washington, D.C., every April during the spring meetings of the World Bank/IFC and every November in a different African city.

AFTS is not your standard, cut-and-dry technology conference, AFTS is a vibrant community of fintech entrepreneurs, investors, regulators, and everyone in between working together to solve the largest financial issues of our time.
Each iteration of the AFTS brings about new topics of conversation and new corporate partnerships. What makes AFTS special is that we are not panel or exhibition focused, our focus in enacting change and fostering the one-on-one connections that change industry and build a better tomorrow.
