Investing in African Fintech Amidst a Global VC Slowdown

Africa Fintech Summit Cape Town 2022 - The year 2022 has brought a ‘VC deep freeze’ to the global technology ecosystem prompted by market uncertainties, inflation, valuation corrections and related macroeconomic conditions. Having seen VC funding of nearly $5 billion in 2021, Africa is standing out globally and fintechs across the continent continue to raise funds as startups are resolving real problems. This panel brings together ecosystem builders, investors, and astute VCs to dissect the African VC landscape despite the global slowdown and provide insights into how investors are differentiating themselves and enabling meaningful support for their portfolio companies. Africa Fintech Summit is the converging point for Africa’s fintech pioneers and global industry leaders shaping payments, technology, and commerce on the continent to drive ecosystem-building initiatives and narratives. The summit typically features roundtables, plenary sessions, networking opportunities, startup demos and exhibitions, eco-system tours, and investor missions connecting thousands of global fintech stakeholders driving the growth of Africa’s fintech sector.
