The event will feature two keynote speakers, a 30 minute panel discussion and a 15 minute Q&A with the participants.
Key to this will include; feedback and inputs on the various investment opportunities for the diaspora community in financial institutions.
The discussions in the session will be centered around; providing potential feedback of investment opportunities in banks for the diaspora communities, addressing challenges experienced by diaspora communities while trying to access investment opportunities, initiate networking among financial institutions and the diaspora community, and improving engagement between banks and the diaspora community.
Through this, Pangea Trust, funded by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency seeks to create a platform to revolutionize startup and SME funding by providing an opportunity to the diaspora to become a key player in the ecosystem.
The aim of the event is to gain vital insights and further involve the key practitioners and stakeholders in providing feedback on the relevance and the value addition of redirecting diaspora remittances towards investment in high growth startups.
