Concept Note

FinTech is a rapidly growing industry in the East African region facilitated by gaps in financial services delivery, increasing mobile penetration and emerging technology which has accelerated innovation. Over the past 5 years, the financial services sector has undergone a series of digital disruptions that have led to the emergence of a FinTech industry that is succeeding either as a stand-alone or as a crucial part of value chains.

Analysts indicate continued growth in the Fintech industry within the region, citing demographic trends which highlight a young millennial population, also described as entrepreneurial, innovative and tech-savvy and seeking to find solutions to common problems. This demographic is taking charge and is keen on exploring new technology trends to enable their lifestyle. Mobile penetration which stands at 62% across the East African region and continued infrastructure development which provides a backbone for innovation to thrive are among the contributing factors. Data and Technology trends have become key components of modern business models which have embraced and now utilize fintech solutions to fill the gaps in the financial services market.
