Highlights from Our Time at the Africa Money and DeFi Summit in Ghana
The Africa Money and DeFi Summit which was held in Ghana was an immersive experience. The summit aimed to connect African fintech stakeholders with global venture platforms and thought leaders across the continent and beyond to explore the opportunities in the decentralized finance ecosystem.
Our Founder and CEO Cannelle Maricaux took to the stage to talk about the much important work we are doing by digitizing real estate investing in Senegal and francophone West Africa using the latest technologies including the blockchain. She highlighted how we are leveraging the blockchain and web3’s future-forward solutions to drive increased access, transparency and ultimately reshape real estate and property tech as an important economic growth driver in Africa.
With the curated panels focused on topical issues in Africa’s blockchain and DeFi sectors, investors, startups and other stakeholders engaged in ecosystem-building conversations, bounced ideas off one another and set the stage for future partnerships. We are convinced that all this will pave the way for the advancement of blockchain-enabled solutions in Africa.
Beyond the stimulating and insightful conversations that took place at the summit, there were other intriguing highlights and noteworthy events.
A VIP networking event hosted by Zeepay on the 26th enabled investors and founders to connect over food and drinks.
Amongst 200 submissions, 10 startups were selected to pitch live on stage at the Africa Money and DeFi Summit.
