3 Reason You Must Attend the “Interswitch Connect 2017” Event this Week


It is stale news that Interswitch, the African-focused Digital Payment and Commerce Company, is holding the maiden edition of its event, “Interswitch Connect”, on 14th and 15th September, 17. My take here really is why you should take this event seriously.

First, It concerns you

The conference is themed “Digital Transformation Imperatives: Innovative Evolution or Disruptive Innovation”. It is for tech and payments enthusiasts: anyone that would love to know more about ground breaking innovations a that are bound to turn around the way we make and receive payments in Africa. If you think that you are not in this category, think again.

It is going to be packed

This conference could be the deciding point of the future of transactions in Nigeria with its keynote presentations from renowned stakeholders in the Fintech, and Commerce industries and of course, some of the great minds that have brought celebrated innovations of recent. Hey! We are talking about bringing together the entire payment ecosystem in one room, in one day!

Interswitch Connect 2017 will feature the CEO of Paystack, Shola Akinlade, 26-year-old co-founder of Flutterwave, Iyinoluwa Aboyeji and the Founder and Executive Vice Chairman of CWG Plc, Austin Okere among many other incredible names. These minds, led by Australian Futurist Brett King, will share experiences and strategies which will fuel the already burning flame of inventions geared towards aiding smooth trading across Africa.

You will learn

Participants of this conference will get the opportunity to learn how they can adapt to new market realities and join in the facilitation of positive growth in the digital payments ecosystem.

Nigeria is about to be flooded with ideas and opportunities in a massive way. This will also be an opportunity for networking with great minds, which could kick start mentor-mentee relationships which is also key to greatness, as some of the individual greatness will rub off on both parties.

In all

Africa is at a point in time when solutions are direly needed, and the future belongs to those who have them. The Nigerian inventor should constantly seek to provide world class solutions in a world where ideas are swiftly turning obsolete with the birth of new ones. This conference will provide that platform for the past, present and future of payments in Africa to meet and have a fruitful intercourse.

The question is who wouldn’t want to be part of such a pivotal point in the history of Nigeria, considering that attendance is free?
