Innovation for Africa

This is a special award for the RemTECH Awards 2020 in honor of the location of this year’s Global Forum on Remittance Investment and Development, which is in Nairobi, Kenya. Africa is home of the largest free-trade area and a 1.2 billion-person market. Four of the fastest growing economies reside there, including Ghana, Ivory Coast, Ethiopia, and Rwanda. Of course, there are many challenges to overcome, but that often is where the best innovations are born. We’re looking for new products, services, campaigns, and research that are improving the way remittances are facilitated in and out of Africa.
