The Exponential Finance Summit is an industry-specific event hosted in collaboration with The Development Bank of Southern Africa, global partners Deloitte, and Discovery, and strategic partner MTN.

The Summit will showcase how exponential technologies are simultaneously shaping and disrupting the financial (FinTech) industry. It aims to empower attendees with the latest insights on how to boost GDP growth, create employment, and attract foreign direct investment—a key enabler of economic growth that is especially important for emerging market economies. 

We attended the launch of the summit in Johannesburg earlier today and heard from some of the amazing industry leaders who will be speaking at the summit, a few words from the sponsors, as well as viewed some of the exponential technology like this Augmented Reality app:

The aim of the summit is to equip organisations with the tools to move not only themselves but the rest of Africa forward through creative technologies in the finance sector.

The 4th Industrial Revolution is here, and every individual has the potential to utilise the technologies like IoT (Internet of Things), VR (Virtual Reality), AR (Augmented Reality, AI (Artificial Intelligence) and robotics to create something that could change the world in timeframes that were not possible before.

Shayne Mann co-CEO of SingularityU South Africa quite aptly put it when he said,

"Each person has the power today to make incredible change in the world."

Watch what he as well as what his brother, Mic Mann co-CEO of SingularityU South Africa, has to say:
