Afrifursa, a newly launched initiative Based in Toronto, Canada, is looking to connect the African and Canadian fintech ecosystems in its inaugural Afrifursa Fintech Summit event, which will take off on the 22nd of this month.

The organisation stated that participants at this highly-anticipated Summit will engage in social impact partnerships through shared thought leadership, understanding of the fintech start-up environment, market intelligence and awareness of B2B opportunities.

“The fintech industry has grown astronomically under the pandemic and global partnerships are going to be key in realizing the industry’s full potential. Collaboration between Canadian and African fintech stakeholders is still largely untapped, so we are offering the Afrifursa Fintech Summit in order to reduce the barriers and forge direct linkages,” said Tapfuma Musewe, founder of Afrifursa.

The Summit will take a deep dive into the following key topics:

  • Economy - The role of Fintech in COVID recovery.
