Last month, Stitch and The Raba Partnership team invited investors from across the globe, and founders from across the continent, to South Africa for our first global fintech meetup – launching inspiring conversations and connections that we hope will fuel even more innovation in Africa’s fintech space.
At Stitch, we know firsthand how difficult it is to launch and scale fintech products on the continent. Startups need access to critical infrastructure, as well as funding and support, in order to grow. A part of the meetup, we launched an early-stage fintech startup showcase to help some innovators on the continent access the capital, advice, and product support they need to keep building and growing the solution of their dreams.
Ten founders from South Africa, Nigeria, Ghana and Kenya – working on solutions from banking platforms, to personal finance, to blockchain innovation – joined us to share more about what they’re building with our guests. The startups were selected from a list of 100 applicants, by third party judges. Over 100 people joined us for the showcase, and many connected with the founders throughout the day.
