Africa Money, DeFi Summit and Amazon Web Services to support the growth and development of the African fintech and Web3 ecosystem

Africa Money

Amazon Web Services (AWS) has partnered with the Africa Money and DeFi Summit to support the growth and development of the African fintech and Web3 ecosystem. The Africa Money and DeFi Summit is a premier event that brings together stakeholders from across the continent and beyond to explore the opportunities and challenges of the emerging digital financial landscape. The summit will feature expert speakers, panel discussions, masterclass sessions, networking opportunities, and an investment showcase.

As part of its partnership with the summit, AWS will host an engaging masterclass session that will cover topics such as Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, and how to accelerate the Web3 journey on AWS. The session will provide participants with invaluable insights into how AWS can help them build, scale, and secure their fintech and Web3 solutions.

AWS has a long history of supporting African innovation and entrepreneurship. AWS has been present in Africa since 2004, when it launched its first office in Cape Town, South Africa. Since then, AWS has expanded its presence across the continent, with offices in Johannesburg, Nairobi, Lagos, Accra, and Cairo. In 2020, AWS launched its first African Region in Cape Town, offering customers access to 23 Availability Zones across 8 Regions in Africa.

AWS also offers various programs and initiatives to help African startups and developers succeed in the cloud. These include AWS Activate, which provides startups with free credits, training, and technical support; AWS Educate, which provides students and educators with access to cloud learning resources; AWS Community Builders, which recognizes and supports local community leaders who share their knowledge and expertise; and AWSome Days Online Conference Africa Editions which are free online events that provide an overview of AWS services.

Lawrence Muthoga, Startup Account Executive for Sub-Saharan Africa at AWS, said: “Africa has leap-frogged in the financial space. This is due to the great impact had by the amazing startups and ecosystem players who have taken it upon themselves to improve the lives of the communities around them. AWS is honored to share in this process and dive deeper into what we have seen working around the globe and in Africa.”

Andrew Fassnidge, founder of the Africa Money and DeFi Summit, said: “Cloud computing is a transformative force that continues to reshape the future of fintech and Web3 in Africa. AWS is at the forefront of this and consistently pushes the boundaries of what’s possible for ventures across the continent. We are delighted to be partnering with AWS again for the Africa Money & DeFi Summit, underscoring the joint dedication supporting African business and innovation.”
