Despite the global economic slowdown in 2020, the volume of deal activity across private equity (PE) and venture capital (VC) in Africa remained steady, with more than 250 PE deals and more than 300 VC deals reported across the continent in 2020.
AVCA, in partnership with all the regional and national PE and VC associations across Africa – AMIC, ATIC, EAVCA, EPEA, PEVCA and SAVCA – is hosting its second annual regional summit to explore the trends that are shaping fundraising, deal-making and exits in Africa’s private investment landscape.
Join us for an afternoon of unrivalled expert insight and perspectives from leaders in the African PE and VC industry. Our distinguished panellists and speakers will explore SME financing and resilience across North and Southern Africa, the rise of fintech in West Africa, and the macroeconomic trends shaping investment in East Africa.
PEVCA Nigeria will host the West Africa Stream of the Summit themed The Rise of FinTech.
As the Nigeria FinTech industry is maturing and continues to grow, there remains a high degree of optimism, however, the industry is not without its scale-up challenges. This session aims to provide an overview of the FinTech landscape and its enablers, identifying and navigating the top challenges of the industry, while providing an outlook for the future of FinTech in Nigeria across four major areas: capital, talent, demand, and policy.
