This includes a dynamic mix of senior finance executives and FinTech Entrepreneurs from Kenya, Benin and South Africa:

  • Dare Okoudjou - Founder and CEO of MSF Africa
  • Jayshree Naidoo - Standard Bank Incubator Head
  • Lungisa Matshoba - Co-founder & Director at Yoco

“#WhatsNext is a series that we started seven months ago. Each month we look at a different sector. We’ve done Financial Technology; We’ve done AgriTech; We’ve done Fashion… And we bring together a whole panel of government, startups, corporates, academics, researchers to really ask them what they feel is going to come up next in that particular sector. So it’s always very exciting when a very different group of people come together to explore a particular vertical.” - Aaron Fu, Managing Partner (Africa) at Nest

The event will be held on the 14th of March 2016 (18:00 to 20:30) in Rosebank at the Standard Bank Incubator (5 Cradock Avenue).

Join them as they host senior finance executives, ICT experts, Entrepreneurs, NGOs, policy makers, investors and media. You’ll walk away having learnt about some use cases of cutting edge technologies, innovative approaches and new business models accelerating financial inclusion in Africa.

While getting some insight on what's next for the future of FinTech, you may meet your future Co-Founder, Investor and/or mentor.
