WHAT'S NEXT for Egypt's FINTECH sector

View descriptionShare

In this episode of The Enterprise Podcast, Patrick hosts a roundtable discussion with major players in the sector to discuss what’s next for fintech. Our entrepreneurs and investors take us through the untapped potential of fintech and which industries in Egypt are most primed for change through fintech. We also get rare insights from the central bank on what regulators are working on to help expand and propel Egypt’s fintech sector to the next stage of its development, including a new law to regulate crowdfunding and peer-to-peer lending. 

Our guests are: 

  • Karim Nour, the co-founder of Kashat — the first nano-finance company in MENA providing financial services to the un- and under-banked. Karim is also the non-executive chairman of Tarek Nour Communications Group.
  • Omar Saleh, the CEO and co-founder of Khazna. Omar joined us the same day his company announced a blockbuster USD 38 mn Series A round
  • Aly El Shalakany, a corporate lawyer and longtime angel investor turned venture capitalist who is now the CEO of the Cairo Angels Syndicate Fund.
  • Ashley Lewis, a partner focused on Africa with Accion Venture Lab and has been investing in financial services and social ventures across sub-Saharan Africa and Southeast Asia for over a decade. El Shalakany is an investor in Kashat while Lewis was one of the first investors at Khazna. 
  • Dr. Rasha Negm. Rasha is an assistant sub-governor of the CBE where she’s the head of fintech and innovation. Rasha is not a newcomer to fintech. A veteran of the banking industry, she led product strategy for Vodafone Cash before joining the CBE.
