The growing demand for data in Africa
The second largest continent in the world and a promising region for investors and Fintech innovation – Africa is currently displaying massive growth. Over the last two decades the African continent has been transformed through various political, economic and social movements. These transformations have created a new and digital-hungry customer-base and countless opportunities for investment, and innovation which has led to the springing up of hundreds of companies looking to serve this demographic.
New technologies brought about by Fintech companies such as Cellulate, Jumo, Paga and value transfer platforms such as Ding, are responding to the demand, and are answering some of Africa’s biggest challenges in terms of internet connectivity, finance, agriculture, healthcare and power. They are accelerating the region into the next stage of development and helping African consumers to leapfrog directly into the latest technologies.
