The panel [L – R]: Dr. Yinka David-West, Academic Director at Lagos Business School (Moderator); angel investor, Yvonne Johnson; Gbenga ‘GB’ Agboola, CEO/Co-Founder at Flutterwave; Adia Sowho, MD (Nigeria) at Mines.io; Titi Adeoye-Odunfa, CEO/Founder at Sankore Investments; and Tomi Amao, CIO at Softcom

If you are unaware, we held our first event of 2018 on Friday, November 30, 2018, in partnership with Softcom. TC Townhall: Fintech 2.0 set out to build on the pre-existing conversations around Nigeria’s Fintech industry to identify possible narratives that could determine what the future of the space looked like.

We’ve been talking about funding, regulation, and products within the segment for the past few years. But where is it all headed? That’s the question.

This was the plan: an intimate venue that could host ~100 people (way more people registered to attend), an agenda that would consist of an innovator showcase, a context setting presentation, a theme panel and enough room for networking and food.

The venue was at Softcom’s office in Ikeja GRA, Lagos and the day’s host was (the awesome) Chidi Uguru, Head of Business Development at Big Cabal Media (TechCabal’s parent company, for the unaware). For the innovator showcase, we had crypto platform BuyCoins, venture capital firm Ventures Platform, and Eyowo, Softcom’s payment product – all with super cool and valuable presentations. TechCabal Editor-in-Chief Bankole Oluwafemi also delivered an interesting context-setting presentation just before the panel came on.

If you missed it (how could you?), you don’t have to miss out on the good stuff too – we’re making all the presentations from the event available for download here.

Enjoy!
