The second edition of Standard Chartered’s Digital Banking, Innovation, and Fintech Festival will be held on October 26th and 27th, 2022 at the Movenpick Hotel in Accra, with the theme “Powering Africa’s Digital Economy: Platforms | Players | Policy.” The two-day hybrid event, which will be opened by H.E.

The 2022 Fintech Festival will include a series of plenary sessions that will look at the opportunities for industry players to collaborate in order to embrace digitization, as well as the extent to which platforms and payments are currently creating value and assisting industry players in remaining agile in the face of disruption.

Also, in a session dedicated to women in technology, participants will discuss the critical need for women-owned businesses to capitalize on the enormous opportunities presented by technology adoption and explore investment opportunities to assist female-owned businesses in scaling further and faster.
