The Best Tweets from Africa’s largest Fintech Event

Last week there was a major fintech event in Africa – Dot Finance Africa. I heard about the fintech conference through various tweets, and was intrigued. Africa is a hot bed of innovation, the region is free from the clutches of legacy and is seemingly ready and willing to embrace new technology. Banks, payment service providers, mobile networks and consumers alike are deploying mobile, digital and other innovative solutions. They view such solutions as a way of enabling economic and social growth and development within the region, and more importantly as an enabler of financial inclusion. With this in mind, i was curious to see what themes were being discussed at the Dot Finance Africa fintech event – and for that i turned to Twitter to see what the folks were talking or tweeting about. These aren’t necessarily the most popular Tweets – just the ones that i found the most interesting and revealing:
