Finnovation Africa: Uganda 2017  

Innovation in Financial Services: A Dynamic Event Tailor-Made for a Cutting-Edge Industry


Finnovation Africa: Uganda 2017 is a very different kind of event, a complete re-boot, for a very different kind of industry. Deconstructed and shorn of all the usual, tired formats of the traditional convention – and built from the ground up as a genuinely new event that is as ground-breaking in its focus as it is in its format - and aspiring to be as innovative and transformative as the dynamic FinTech market it serves.


The focus is on FinTech especially on mobile money, blockchain, digital money, payment innovation, financial technology solutions etc– and harnessing the impact of this revolution to positively transform financial services in Africa – including positive strategic outcomes such as financial inclusion & deepening.


Finnovation Africa Uganda 2017 will gather all stakeholders and influencers in the African FinTech value chain from the key markets across Africa and internationally. The focus is FinTech Impact and the objective is for such developments to deliver constructive economic outcomes and to be genuinely socially useful and improve how ordinary people engage with financial services. Government agencies, leading banks & financial institutions, legacy and neo payment players, international & regional influencers, the tech start-up community on the continent, and investors will interact at the event, with a focus on delivering a constructive FinTech impact for Africa.


Finnovation Africa: Uganda 2017, will take place on 7th April 2017 at the Sheraton Kampala Hotel in Uganda.
