Carnegie Mellon University Africa invites you to a Masterclass : “FinTech: Powering Africa’s Single Digital Market” with Dr. Martin Saint.

Achieving this goal depends upon the application of technology in multiple domains ranging from regulation to digital payments.

This talk explores these topics and key drivers such as digital identity and technology education that are necessary to enable them.

Talk will be followed by a panel discussion with industry expert to explore the opportunities for Africa to tap into the digital market, discuss emerging trends and key projects that are changing the fintech landscape. Join the conversation with professionals from different sectors as well as CMU-Africa faculty, students and alumni.
