With the timer ticking down narrowing to the launch date in April for the Fintech Academy. Fintech Academy will have a  two-day curriculum designed to provide a comprehensive understanding of key areas of Fintech that would normally take between nine months and one year to attain in normal working circumstances.

Being a seed of Fintech Circle a London based company and CiTi, Fintech Academy has as combined international expertise, along with local core capability, to bridge the cutting edge of Fintech trends internationally with relevant South African and African applicability.

Nicole Anderson, CEO, and co-founder of FinTech Circle said the curriculum had been adapted with particular care to be of relevance to executives based in Africa.

“South Africa and the rest of the continent present a number of unique and exciting opportunities for the use of Fintech, particularly in areas of Fintech convergence,” she said.

“Skills are a hot topic anywhere in the world when it comes to Fintech and this region is no exception. This is still a nascent industry – and stakeholders are learning in parallel. Innovation is much more about experimentation and execution than theory and through the academy, we are able to bring world class learnings and trends to life with African use cases and serve the needs of all key stakeholders – big business, policymakers, government bodies and the innovators themselves – in a relevant and engaging way.”
