Event Info

The internationally successful FinTech Academy will be launching in South Africa as The FinTech Academy Africa on the 24th and 25th April.

The Academy is aimed at C-Level executives who have limited time but who need a deep dive into global best practice in FinTech. The two day curriculum has therefore been designed to provide a comprehensive understanding of key areas of FinTech which would normally take between nine months and a year to attain in normal working circumstances.

We have combined international expertise, along with local core capability to bridge the cutting edge of FinTech trends internationally with relevant South and African applicability.

Ian Merrington CEO of The Cape Innovation and Technology Initiative (CiTi) says “Board directors and Executive Committee members are increasingly being called upon to make far reaching strategic business decisions in areas effected by rapidly developing disruptive technology. The curriculum of the FinTech Academy has been specifically developed to fast track their knowledge, support decision making and also to future proof their careers”

Nicole Anderson CEO and Co-founder of FinTech Circle added “We have taken particular care to adapt the curriculum to be of relevance to executives who are based in Africa. South Africa and the rest of the continent present a number of unique and exciting opportunities for the use of FinTech, particularly in areas of FinTech convergence” This curriculum will be based on the international bestselling The FinTech Book© and is a first for the continent.

The FinTech Academy Africa is a partnership between London based, FinTech Circle and The Cape Innovation and Technology Initiative (CiTi) based in South Africa, and follows on from a recent successful collaboration to create specialised FinTech incubation support programs.
