Nomanini CEO Vahid Monadjem heads to Rabat, Morocco this month to participate in the 2013 Atlantic Dialogues Emerging Leaders Program.

The Atlantic Dialogues, an initiative co-founded by The German Marshall Fund and the OCP Foundation, aims to create a unique atmosphere for intellectual exchange and networking, and enable all participants to be fully engaged in the debates. The 2013 Dialogues, to be held in Morocco from 25 - 27 October, will see 400 high-level public- and private-sector leaders from around the Atlantic Basin come together for three days of open, informal discussion on cross-regional issues ranging from security to economics, migration to energy.

The Emerging Leaders at The Atlantic Dialogues are selected based upon recommendations by peers and senior individuals in their field. The group is made up of emerging leaders between the ages of 23 and 35 who demonstrate leadership potential in their sector. They are leaders who are dedicated to strengthening ties across the Atlantic as well as engage with and impact the regional, transatlantic, and global agenda.

“I am really honoured to be selected to participate in this year’s Emerging Leaders program,” said Monadjem. “It will be a great opportunity to share in the dialog regarding opportunities for and responsibilities of the private-sector.”

During the program the Emerging Leaders will serve as the voice of their generation, region, and sector as they interact with a diverse group of current and future leaders from around the Atlantic Basin. By doing so they gain insight into regional, transatlantic, global challenges and opportunities while further developing their leadership skills. Monadjem says he “hopes to learn more about the challenges and potential and engage with like-minded partners from across the region and from across different sectors of society.”

The Atlantic Dialogues The Emerging Leaders program precedes the The Atlantic Dialogues and will focus on the exchange of ideas peer to peer learning and skills to the effect of change. In line with founding partners GMF and the OCP Foundation commitment to giving the next generation of leaders a chance to address global issues on the transatlantic agenda, The Atlantic Dialogues serves as a platform where emerging leaders in the world of politics, business, and ideas engage with senior policymakers and business and media representatives. By encouraging a lively and informal exchange of views between emerging leaders and today’s decision-makers, the conference offers a strategic perspective on policy questions affecting the Atlantic Basin.

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.

Nomanini was founded in 2010 and is headquartered in South Africa.
