Benefits of joining the Mauritius Africa FinTech Hub as an FSP or corporate

In an environment where 80% of the population is unbanked, FinTech solutions are mitigating the need for financial services in the traditional sense on the African continent. As long as you have a mobile phone, you are not out of reach of the life-changing empowerment FinTech innovation can bring. Mobile money, mobile authentication, financial chat bots, social lending and even bitcoin wallets, to name a few, are all tech that’s changing the way people do business. Consumers are open to change, which means that the market, to a large extent, is following.

If you’re part of an FSP or corporate entity you likely have an idea of the changing environment and the risks involved in developing some of these technologies in-house in response to market needs. The overall consensus most recently has been in favour of partnerships between more established FSPs or corporates and smaller companies with the agility to innovate. This helps small businesses grow and helps larger, more traditional companies broaden their offering with new fresh products. Joining the Mauritius Africa FinTech Hub can assist you and your business in building these relationships:
