CAPE TOWN, (CAJ News) – ACKNOWLEDGING the role financial technology is playing in redefining financial boundaries and opportunity, AfricaCom 2017 has added a specific track focusing on Africa’s financial digital fluency.
A host of talks, presentations, case studies and prospects around fintech and e-commerce will debut at the event scheduled for November 7-9 in Cape Town.
Tom Cuthell, Portfolio Director of AfricaCom organiser KNect365, said more than ever before, AfricaCom 2017 will provide the ability for Africa to shape itself for the future, drive itself forward and serve as an example for other economies looking to get ahead.
“Digital disruption equals digital democracy and nowhere will this be more keenly felt than in the ability for all levels of society to engage in the monetary exchange and rewards that fin-tech can provide,” Cuthell said.
“For this reason, we have developed a detailed stream of content to appeal to all players in the financial value chain – from developers, payment partners, retailers and end users. It is a must for any business looking to transact online.”
