#40days40fintechs Update: Interaction with shortlisted participants kicks off.

KAMPALA, UGANDA – 07 May, 2020. As part of its on-going Financial Inclusion efforts, HiPipo will tomorrow 08th roll-out the second phase of the 40 DAYS 40 FINTECHs initiative.

This phase will include direct interactions with shortlisted FinTechs; shining a light on to one participant every day for the next 40 days, introduction to interoperability using Mojaloop and wider discussions on both opportunities and challenges in the sector.

Announced on 13th May 2020, the 40 DAYS 40 FINTECHs project is bringing together 40 Africa based Financial Technology companies with Women led FinTechs given special attention.

While unveiling the project recently, Innocent Kawooya – the HiPipo CEO noted that this initiative will help to expose local FinTechs, Developer teams or emerging companies to new tools available to reach the poor and as such extend access to innovative financial services.

“FinTechs should be excited because they have a grand chance to expand their market, first through learning and developing interoperable solutions using new amazing technologies such as Mojaloop. And secondly, because of the many discoveries and lessons they are going to make from the many astonishing and failed stories that we are going to discover and expose to the FinTech community and the world.” Mr. Kawooya said, adding;

“Additionally, thanks to this initiative, Mobile Network Operators and Banks are going to be more open to integration and collaboration and last but most importantly, one or a number of the FinTechs that will participate in the initiative, collaborate and embrace the use of Mojaloop might turn into the real heroes of our economy that will maybe create a payment switch that will simplify payments interoperability in different markets forever.”

For the next 40 days, this project will be aired on Smart 24 TV at 8pm, uploaded across social media and featured in other traditional and new media outlets.

A few slots still remain for both Ugandan based and Women centric Fintechs. Follow this link to learn more about the 40 DAYS 40 FINTECHs registration – https://www.hipipo.org/40-days-40-fintech/

Include EveryOne Program.

HiPipo is keen to promote secure digital financial services because of their vital role in promoting financial inclusion.

The primary objective is to flag, advocate for and shine a light on impactful and transformative directions in the financial inclusion arena.

Our aim is to influence and shape financial technology and policy decisions within regulators, policy makers, government, political, economic, and social systems and institutions.

About Mojaloop OSS.

Mojaloop OSS is open-source software for financial services companies, government regulators, and others taking on the challenges of interoperability and financial inclusion. It was originally developed by ModusBox with funding from Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Level 1 Project in 2017.

However, on May 6th 2020, the Mojaloop Foundation was unveiled with its initial sponsors being Coil, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Google, ModusBox, Omidyar Network, and The Rockefeller Foundation. The established of the Mojaloop Foundation will extend financial inclusion efforts, initiated by the Mojaloop platform to over 500 million people in developing countries.
