Web3, fintech start-ups invited to pitch at Accra summit
So, you’re the founder of an Africa-based Web3 or fintech start-up. You’re ready to scale – even if that means traveling to Accra in Ghana to vie for the attention of investors at the West-African edition of the Africa Money & DeFi Summit.
If this sounds like you, you have until Thursday, 1 September to apply to pitch at the two-day summit held on Tuesday, 27 and Wednesday, 28 September 2022. Organisers say that applications are reviewed on a rolling basis, and in the end ten start-ups will be selected to present their ventures.
Following a sold-out event in Nairobi early this year, the event organised by Africa Tech Summit is, again, inviting start-ups to join for two days of sessions and networking events that will share insights on payments, crypto, digital identity, neo banking, mobile cash, investing, BNPL and more.
Start-ups from across Africa will be selected by the Africa Money & DeFi Summit team and given the chance to pitch their business and their current ask – whether funding, partnership, or other – live on stage.
Andrew Fassnidge, founder of Africa Money & DeFi Summit, says, “We are excited to host African ventures to Pitch Live on stage at Africa Money & DeFi Summit again. While we continue to welcome applications from companies in fintech and embedded finance we are also really looking forward to seeing ventures innovating in the new wave of DeFi and Web3.”
Selected start-ups will be showcased to investors and enjoy full access to the summit and take part in the wide variety of workshops, discussions and networking sessions taking place.
Start-ups must be African (have at least one African co-founder or headquartered in Africa), have at least a MVP ideally with existing traction and have a current “ask”.
Ventures must be able to attend the Accra-based summit in person. Applications are made via the official summit website.
