African Fintech Unconference

Lake Victoria Serena Resort

10 - 12 September 2019

EVENT FORMAT

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. The content is proposed and provided by the participants, and is often led and adjusted by the participants on the day of the event.

The African Fintech Unconference differs slightly in style from a traditional unconference in that there will be a few pre-arranged  sessions in line with the theme of the unconference ‘Catalyzing business-led the Next Wave of Business-led Financial Inclusion.’

 

However, the majority of the agenda is left open, to allow for the informal exchange of information and ideas between participants, rather than follow a conventionally structured programme of events. This is the opportunity to share with and learn from your peers in a fun and relaxed setting.
