Exciting news for the African FinTech community and technology enthusiasts!

This year, the festival is set to take place in the picturesque town of Naivasha, situated on the serene shores of Lake Naivasha in Kenya.

The Africa Fintech Festival (AFF) is the brainchild of the Africa FinTech Network (AFN), an organization dedicated to fostering innovation, collaboration, and growth in the financial technology space across the continent. The inaugural AFF was launched in Nigeria back in 2018, aiming to explore the future of FinTech in the African context. Following its success, the second edition was held in Uganda in 2019, focusing on the pivotal role of FinTech in Africa’s digital economy. The third edition took place in Mauritius, where thought leaders gathered to discuss the latest trends and challenges in the sector. Now, the fourth edition is all set to make waves in Kenya.
