is going virtual!

November 9, 10, & 12

As the first fintech event held twice a year in the USA and Africa, Africa Fintech Summit boasts the largest network of African fintech stakeholders from across the globe. Since 2018, AFTS has hosted more than 1500 attendees, from 50+ countries and 6 continents, who collectively represent each of the sector’s top stakeholder segments. 

This year, we have merged our two bi-annual events into one, three-day virtual event. The fifth AFTS will host 500 attendees and 60 speakers calling in from 10 different time zones across the globe. Each day’s content is organized by themes and covers the trends we uncovered during the preparation of Africa Fintech: State of the Industry 2020, a 63-page report solely dedicated to Africa’s fintech innovators, investors, policymakers, and more.
