Fintech startups have two weeks to apply for Catapult: Inclusion Africa bootcamp

African fintech startups have about two weeks left to apply for the Catapult: Inclusion Africa fintech bootcamp which will take place in Luxembourg in November.

Applications for the 12 available spots on the programme will close on 25 September, while the bootcamp will take place between 5 and 9 November.

The fully funded week-long bootcamp is an initiative of The Luxembourg House of Financial Technology (LHoFT) in partnership with PwC and the government of Luxembourg.

It is aimed at Africa fintech startups working to improve financial inclusion on the continent. Any startup — late-stage or early-stage — can apply.

The bootcamp aims to help participants collaborate better with partners, sponsors, investors, microfinance institutions and public financial institutions.

To be considered for the bootcamp, applicants must: have a minimum viable product that they would be able to implement in a pilot project and should have a meaningful customer or business validation.

Applicants must also have a strong and well-balanced team capable of handling sales, tech developments and operations internally.
