Africa FinTech Virtual Business Mission

  • Virtual
Opportunities for Austrian tech companies

The mobile payments market in Africa is already a $456 billion market with 469 million user accounts. Especially in Sub-Saharan Africa, over 60% of the adult population has a mobile money account. Still, there is a large informal and fragmented payment system that includes banks, mobile wallets, local card networks and other payment providers that need a seamless experience for all users. With its young, growing and tech-savvy population, Africa is well positioned for companies looking to add value through software solutions. Africa's fintech industry is undoubtedly large and untapped with enormous potential.

The three Austrian foreign trade centers in sub-Saharan Africa - Nairobi , Lagos and Johannesburg - are organizing a one-day virtual business mission entitled "Africa FinTech Virtual Business Mission" to present the great opportunities in payment transactions on the African continent.

The virtual mission will include master classes from experts and companies operating in the region and doing important work in the following areas of the growing FinTech industry:

  • Digital ID
  • Blockchain
  • crypto
  • software solutions

The program is rounded off by B2B sessions that allow you to meet companies and decision-makers from the region and the entire industry. This is your opportunity to understand the market and make important contacts while exploring the opportunities of the African payments industry.


It is a virtual event on b2match, divided into master classes and B2B meetings.
