Finan­cial tech­nol­o­gy (Fin­tech) is used to describe new tech that seeks to improve and auto­mate the deliv­ery and use of finan­cial ser­vices. At its core, fin­tech is uti­lized to help com­pa­nies, busi­ness own­ers and con­sumers bet­ter man­age their finan­cial oper­a­tions, process­es, and lives by uti­liz­ing spe­cial­ized soft­ware and algo­rithms that are used on com­put­ers and, increas­ing­ly, smart­phones. Fin­tech, the word, is a com­bi­na­tion of “finan­cial technology”.

In this webi­nar we will:

  • Dis­cuss how fin­tech allows last-mile dis­trib­u­tors to con­nect with inde­pen­dent field oper­a­tors, retail­ers, dis­trib­u­tors & financiers, includ­ing push­ing all project finance deals to investors, get­ting paid at the point of sale and improv­ing the busi­ness liquidity.
  • Find out how fin­tech solu­tions enable effi­cient solar micro-grid eco-sys­tems to be deployed across Africa.
  • Know how tech­nol­o­gy-backed aggre­ga­tor com­pa­nies offers inno­v­a­tive off-grid ‘ener­gy as a ser­vice’ (EaaS) pay­ment solu­tion at scale and speed thanks to fintech
  • Dis­cuss about the finan­cial inclu­sion by pro­vid­ing access to the mil­lions of under­banked and unbanked in both rur­al and peri urban areas.

Par­tic­i­pa­tion is free of charge, reg­is­tra­tion is required. To the registration.

The “Africa Ener­gy Start-Ups Series” is a col­lab­o­ra­tion between Startup|Energy and AFSIA which will present inno­v­a­tive African start-ups every 2 months on a mul­ti­tude of top­ics such as e‑mobility, stor­age, fin­tech and pro­duc­tive use to cite a few. The spir­it of this series is to pro­mote African start-ups, for Africans by Africans and to present how inno­v­a­tive they are to poten­tial part­ners and investors com­ing from the rest of the world.
