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 come together at Finnovation Africa 2017 in Uganda with the objective of harnessing the FinTech revolution to enable strategic economic priorities such as financial inclusion and deepening - FinTech impact: Making a positive difference.
