On Episode 17, our expert hosts Ronit and Gaurav welcome Wiza Jalakasi, VP of Global Developer Relations at Chipper Cash, where he shared how massive internet adoption is changing Africa and creating more opportunities in the region.
Internet adoption and thus high mobile penetration have been key in driving consumer demand for digital financial services in Africa. Getting support from worldwide figures such as Obama’s visit to 2015 Global Entrepreneurship Summit was extremely impactful in attracting foreign investments for the African start-ups and putting the continent in the global spotlight. But more importantly, sustaining the rapid expansion of Africa’s fintech ecosystem should also be attributed to the Fintech veterans who reinvested their wealth into supporting other local start-ups.
