Event Context & Background

Mauritius Africa Fintech Hub (MAFH) is a public-private initiative launched and fully supported by the Government of Mauritius. The ecosystem is made up of entrepreneurs, corporations, governments, tech experts, investors, financial service providers, universities and research institutions who can collaborate to build cutting- edge solutions for the emerging African market.

With FinTech on the rise and its predicted future growth, particularly in Africa, MAFH aims to position Mauritius as a hub to and from Africa for local, pan-African and global businesses to create and strengthen partnerships between fintech companies,

corporates and investors. The continent has so far already seen the adoption of fintech innovations that are solving real challenges that people face in their day to day lives.

With the help of partnerships, networks and bilateral investment agreements already in existence between the Mauritian government and some African states, MAFH will focus on actively developing processes that will accelerate cross-border FinTech education, business integration and growth, ensuring that each local ecosystem can seamlessly integrate into the wider pan-African ecosystem, for the benefit of all the stakeholders.

About MAFH

The Mauritius Africa Fintech Hub (MAFH) launched in October 2018 with the objective to promote Mauritius as one of the Fintech Innovation Hub for Africa.

MAFH exists to bring together Mauritius and Pan-African regulators, corporates, small businesses, academia and all other stakeholders to collaborate in the FinTech space, that will empower African FinTech into the future. MAFH is an initiative supported and pioneered by the Mauritian government, in collaboration with the private sector, as announced in the 2017/2018 budget speech. As an association and NGO at heart, MAFH is here to serve the ecosystem in an open and collaborative manner.
