At the LHoFT, we strongly believe that financial technology is crucial to advancing financial inclusion, empowering groups that have been left behind by the traditional financial system. Whether it’s financing for rural farmers, point of sale technology for underbanked merchants, or specialised insurance products, the positive impact being driven by entrepreneurship is improving lives around the world.
Building on the success of previous experience, CATAPULT: Inclusion Africa is a unique program of Fintech startup development from the LHoFT, aligned with sustainability goals of Luxembourg’s finance centre. CATAPULT: Inclusion Africa will leverage Luxembourg’s Inclusive Finance and Fintech ecosystem to support the 12 selected firms in developing their businesses and achieving their inclusion goals.
