In the past 3 years, Ecobank Nigeria has strengthened its collaboration and engagement with the fintech industry, and to further build this engagement, the bank teamed up with Africa’s leading tech publication, TechCabal, to host the Fintech Breakfast series, an event series.

During the last edition, discussions were had on how fintechs and banks can build and leverage strategic partnerships for growth and expansion. The event featured industry experts including Paga CEO, Tayo Oviosu and Gbenga Ajayi, partner at QED Investors as speakers.

This series is designed to hold quarterly and aims to gather fintech leaders across the continent to share business insights, as well as discuss pertinent topics in the fintech ecosystem such as regulatory guidelines, funding and other topics of interest to fintech startups at different stages of their journey.
