WHAT IS AN UNCONFERENCE?
An unconference is an open, participant-driven event. It is designed to enable rapid exchange of information and ideas, provide a space for valuable conversations and promote the development of collaborative relationships. Participants propose content and session topics and lead various sessions on the day of the event.
Read more about previous events and what to expect from an unconference in our event blog.

Based on feedback from various participants, we would like to create a Participant Book - a "directory" of the companies and participants present at the 2019 African Fintech Unconference.
The idea is to have a tool that enables further conversations and connections outside of the event by being able to quickly find information about each other.

For me, the value was being able to have spontaneous and honest conversations among fintech innovators, FSPs and sector experts that unearthed important issues for the industry to move forward.
This level of candidacy is rarely possible at conventional conferences.

Tugende finances income-generating assets for proven entrepreneurs. Tugende’s
primary product is a lease to own motorcycle financing package.
The teams behind MFS Africa, Nomanini, and Tugende met in 2015 through an entrepreneurs’ bootcamp hosted by the Zambezi Prize for Financial Inclusion. We immediately recognised the value of connecting, collaborating, and commiserating with other fintech innovators in similar stages of the start-up journey. We want to continue the conversation through the unconference format to encourage free-flowing, constructive, organic discussions and connections.
