The Africa Money & Defi Summit, an African event for fintech, decentralized finance, mobile money, and crypto, has announced the final shortlist of exciting ventures that will pitch live on stage in West Africa to more than 400 fintech and crypto leaders on September 27th and 28th in Accra.
Pitch Live West Africa has received more than 200 applications. Its goal is to show off the best fintech, cryptocurrency, and Web3 ventures from all over the continent and connect them with leading investors, corporations, and business opportunities.
We are so happy with how well our most recent Pitch Live went, and we can’t wait to show off these new Web3 and fintech businesses.
After the success of this year’s Africa Tech Summit in Nairobi, where several Pitch Live ventures closed rounds after pitching, Andrew Fassnidge, the founder of Africa Money & Defi Summit, said, “Our goal is to continue to drive investment and connect ventures, investors, and partners.”
Businesses from all over the continent sent in applications, and the following ones were chosen to take part.
