CIO East Africa did for the second time declare its intention to work with like-minded partners in hosting the East African Fintech Summit in Nairobi to oversee the Transformation of Digital Financial Services and SAGE responded to that call.

The Summit will be hosted at the Villa Rosa Kempinski hotel, Nairobi on the 22nd and 23rd May 2019 and will draw together about 200 top-tier practitioners from the finance and Technology industries.

“We express our gratitude to partners making this invaluable engagement happen at a time when the fastest and most attractive services are inclined towards innovation solutions and applications that will spur the economic growth,” said Ms Laura Chite, CEO CIO East Africa in obligation.

The second Fintech Summit will run under the THEME: COLLABORATION & INNOVATION IN THE FINANCIAL SERVICES INDUSTRY and is purposed to among other disciplines, explore the Interoperability and Data Protection in the Mobile Money Industry.

Sage believes that re-imagining business is not about playing catch up, but leapfrogging the competition. It combines the social, mobile and real-time technology to put live information at the clients’ fingertips so they can make fast, and informed decisions.

At the Summit, SAGE will walk Fintech companies through a journey of Innovation in an ever changing FSI landscape and through the Analytical Trends to combat Fraud and Financial Crimes.

Sessions at the summit include both plenary and panel, started off by an Exclusive CEO Roundtable at 7.30 am on the 22nd that will be graced by Dr. Patrick Njoroge (TBC), the Governor Central Bank of Kenya, Dr. Bitange Ndemo, Chairman Blockchain & AI Taskforce, Eng. Francis Wangusi, the Director General, Communications Authority of Kenya and Dr. Katherine Getao, CEO ICT Authority among others.

More than elsewhere, East Africa has in the recent past seen the impact of Fintech both Socially and Economically.

At the two-day summit, attendees will engage in Intensive Discussions Sessions to explore the aspects affecting the Financial Sector and interact with others as they exchange information and develop professional and /or social networks.
