Summary
The African Fintech Unconference post event report is now available for download. It includes a summary of the breakaway sessions, as well as event highlights and pictures.

In late March, Nomanini, in partnership with the Bankable Frontiers Associates' FIBR project, hosted the first African Fintech Unonference in Ghana.

Innovators, thought leaders, industry regulators, banks, telcos, and other established players in the emerging fintech sector, gathered in Accra for two days to discuss how fintech players can engage in smarter partnerships in a fast-moving industry that is ripe for consolidation.

From the feedback we received, the event proved valuable for everyone who attended, with every attendee saying they are either likely or very likely to recommend the African Fintech Unconference to a colleague or friend. For most, it was the first unconference-style event that they participated in, and we were delighted to see that over 75% of attendees rated that they were extremely satisfied with the format.

About Nomanini

As the pioneering fintech platform for the informal retail ecosystem, Nomanini connects merchants and distributors to each other and global service providers, integrating payments, working capital, and data analytics to unlock the latent potential of Africa’s economy.

Nomanini turns any mobile device into a retail point-of-sale solution for informal merchants that is connected to an interoperable merchant wallet. The interoperable merchant wallet allows merchants to offer a broad range of digital banking (including cash-in/cash-out), mobile, utility and entertainment services to their customers boosting competitiveness. In turn, digital service providers rapidly increase the scale and reach of their offerings. By generating real-time insights based on transaction data, distributors using the platform gain a single view of their merchant network, ensuring inventory is where it is needed most to improve sales. Distributors can also begin to accept payments for goods electronically, eliminating the risk and inefficiency of collecting cash. With data analytics, Nomanini helps extend working capital loans to merchants via distributors allowing them to invest in inventory to grow their businesses. The increased volume of goods and services set against reduced operational friction increases the profits for all platform participants.

Headquartered in Cape Town and founded in 2011, Nomanini has partnered with Standard Bank Group.
