Mondato Summit Africa Redefining Mobile Financial Services

Mondato Summit Africa Redefining Mobile Financial Services

Sponsored by Mondato Summit Africa

Mobile financial services in Africa have traditionally targeted unbanked or underbanked populations at the base of the pyramid.

From person-to-person transfers to airtime top-up and mobile bill payment, these products aimed to create more affordable and convenient financial services for those with a mobile phone, but limited access to formal financial institutions.

From mobile network operators and financial institutions, to third-party technology providers, mobile financial services stakeholders in these economies must re-evaluate how they can adapt to these shifting trends and ensure that they stay relevant.

Mondato Summit Africa will focus on the new wave of mobile financial services developing in many African countries and the alliances and strategies that help to support these new and innovative technologies.

Attendees from more than a dozen countries in Africa and globally will be represented at the Mondato Summit Africa, including the following:
