AFI open competition for FinTech Innovators: FinTech Showcase at AFI GPF 2019

Recognizing the power of financial technology (FinTech) to create breakthrough solutions that support and scale quality financial services, Alliance for Financial Inclusion (AFI) is holding an open competition for FinTech innovators to showcase solutions that target low-income populations within the following seven themes: gender, youth, ageing, forcibly displaced persons, de-risking, regulatory technology/supervisory technology (RegTech/SupTech) and Inclusive Green Finance.

Finalists will be given the opportunity to present their solutions at AFI’s annual flagship event, the Global Policy Forum (GPF), held in Kigali, Rwanda, on September 11-13, 2019.
