Africa Fintech Summit is going virtual this year! Attendees can expect the same high-quality content and speaker insights that have influenced trends and opportunities in Africa's fintech sector since we launched the summit series three years ago. No longer restricted by physical borders, AFTS presents a wider range of thought leaders, topics, and innovators, to a more inclusive group of global participants.
This year, in consideration of the 500+ attendees calling in from across the globe, #AFTS2020 will occur in five hour segments over a series of three days. Each day will feature inspiring keynotes, four panel sessions, a startup exhibition and demo event, AI-powered networking sessions, and intimate fireside chats. On Day 3, ten startups will pitch for Pegasus Tech Ventures' Startup World Cup competition where the winner will go on to compete against other startups, worldwide, for a chance to win US $1M!
