The EcoBank Fintech Challenge is a competition open to all startups across Africa. They are looking for innovative solutions that address the challenges faced by people and businesses on the continent. This could include:

  • Making financial services more accessible: How can we make it easier for people who don’t have bank accounts to access financial services like savings, loans, and payments?
  • Improving the customer experience: Can we create more user-friendly ways for people to bank online and at branches?
  • Supporting small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs): How can we make it easier for SMEs to get access to credit and manage their finances?
  • Developing new and efficient payment systems: Are there innovative ways to send and receive money, especially in areas with limited internet access?
