Celebrating African FinTech and building partnerships: Networking Reception

  • Terrace Pavilion, Palace of Westminster Westminster, London SW1A 0AA United Kingdom (map)

Invitation Only

The UK is a globally recognised hub of FinTech excellence, with a wealth of unique expertise to offer to emerging markets. Leveraging this expertise to empower and enable FinTech in emerging markets to grow successful business has the potential to stimulate growth, create jobs, drive financial inclusion and make it easier for UK companies to enter and invest in the markets of the future.

Last year the Prime Minister launched the UK-Africa FinTech Partnership, which aims to deepen collaboration and build links between the thriving FinTech industries in Africa and the UK.

Join Alastair Lukies, Chair of the Africa FinTech Investment Group, and the Minister of State for Africa, Harriett Baldwin MP, to celebrate the game-changing innovations in mobile money and other financial technology coming out of Africa.

 This networking reception is an opportunity to meet Nigerian innovators who have won a Department for International Development-supported FinTech challenge fund in Nigeria to help turn their innovations into successful businesses.
