The Africa Fintech Summit is the largest Pan-African initiative to bring together Africa’s top fintech decision makers, regulators, investors and innovators driving the future of this rapidly growing industry. AFTS was founded in 2017 and has hosted summits in Washington DC, Lagos, Addis Ababa, Cairo, Cape Town and Lusaka.

AFTS isn’t just another “tech conference” in Africa; AFTS is an endeavor to support financial technology which drives forward sustainable economic growth and financial inclusion and foster US-Africa Fintech connection and collaborations. One of the ways AFTS has been able to accomplish this is by taking the necessary extra steps to directly engage regulators, bring new investors to the ecosystem, and support early-stage entrepreneurs with flagship events in Washington DC every April and in one African city every November as well as having directly assisted in bringing over $300M USD in venture investment to the African continent, facilitating bi-lateral agreements between central banks, and assisting global firms with their company expansions, AFTS is dedicated to the advancement of Africa’s fintech industry.

In 2023, AFTS witnessed over 1,200 unique in-person delegates (1,400+ total) traveling from over 65 countries to attend the summit. In one year, AFTS played a pivotal role in hosting USAID’s Tech for Trade Alliance launch in April 2023 at our summit in Washington DC, helping facilitate AWS’ inaugural African Fintech Startup Loft Accelerator (SLA), announcing the Ministry of Technology & Science in Zambia’s groundbreaking smartphone factory as well as hosting the Alpha Expo Pitch Competition of 16 early stage startups sponsored by USAID in Zamba in November 2023. The 2024 African leg of our summit will take place in Nairobi, Kenya on 04-07 September 2024 at the newly to-be-opened JW Marriott Hotel while the Washington DC event will take a half day event, pitch competition and a happy hour during the WB/IMF spring meeting on the 17th April 2024 at the Halcyon House in DC.
