About this event

We are proud to bring you another exciting event, this time with the founding team of fintech and mobility startup Planet42.

During the session, we will explore the correlations between physical mobility and social mobility, meaning how moving from A to B safely and in a timely manner, being able to access opportunities that are physically far away can impact the ability to develop in terms of career, wealth and prosperity.

We will also discuss how traditional banks are failing to provide basic financial services to the population, and what startups are doing about it. Crucially, we’ll look at why banks are so slow when it comes to innovation.

It will also be an opportunity to discuss fintech and tech startups in Africa and their difference with European counterparts, and for aspiring entrepreneurs to ask both founders questions around creating and leading a startup as well as raising millions in funding.
