Fintechs are companies, in most cases startups, that develop innovative technologies in the financial sector, creating disruptive services for the final consumer. In an industry strongly linked to systems, processes, paradigms and traditional brands, the multiplication and rise of these new players in the financial market means an unprecedented revolution.

In May 2018, in a partnership between Banco de Moçambique and FSDMOÇ, we registered the launch of the Regulatory Sandbox that very recently authorized the official operation, in the Mozambican market, of the first fintechs. It is a case of success in this journey and happens at a time when the 2nd edition of the Sandbox and the launch of the Innovation Hub are launched. It is expected to be a vibrant space and stage for genuine innovation with a primary focus on solving the problems of the most vulnerable strata.

Applications range from digital payment platforms / gateways, international transfer remittances, mobile wallets, payment aggregators, among others.

YOUNG MOZAMBICANS CREATE INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGICAL SOLUTIONS TO PROMOTE THE USE OF AND ACCESS TO FINANCIAL SERVICES IN SADC

Young Mozambicans create innovative technological solutions to promote the use of and access to financial services in SADC Creating innovative technological solutions to promote the use of and access to financial services in the Southern African region is a key challenge that unites young people from the member countries of the SADC region. To address this challenge the SADC Innovation Challenge was launched in February 2020 by FinMark Trust (FMT) to support the design of innovative technological solutions that promote the use of and access to financial services in the region. A series of events were undertaken from initial physical events, and later virtual bootcamps and training webinars, guided by key thematic challenges (financing for SMEs, women and savings, digital financial identity, and access to basic services). In Mozambique, the Financial Sector Deepening Mozambique (FSDMoç) and ideaLab implemented the Innovation Challenge at national level, and have been driving the objectives and the training of participants – all to bring meaningful solutions to market. FSDMoç has been supporting various initiatives in the field of innovation for many years and were the forerunners to embrace this regional Innovation Challenge, especially as the themes brought up for the competition reflect the country’s biggest challenges, and FSDMoç see infinite potential in the solutions our young entrepreneurial players can bring to market. The implementation of these ideas can contribute greatly to mitigate social problems that affect a large part of the populations of the region.
