The Standard Chartered Digital Banking, Innovation and Fintech Festival was curated as a thought leadership event and a platform for Government and key stakeholders including Fintechs to showcase Ghana’s digital infrastructure and the great strides Ghana has made on the national digitalization journey.
The 2- day hybrid event dubbed “Powering Africa’s Digital Economy: Platforms Players Policy” focuses on Africa’s digital transformation and aims to engage local and international players in the FinTech ecosystem, seasoned experts and practical FinTech innovators towards shaping strategies and policies as the continent drives towards a digitized financial ecosystem that is not only future proof but dynamic.
