629. Insights: Can Egypt’s young population push through a fintech revolution?

Kate Moody is joined by some great guests, from Lucky and Global Ventures, to talk about the rise of fintech in Egypt!

Our expert host, Kate Moody, is joined by some great guests to delve into Egypt's fintech scene.

While we in the West may associate Egypt with its grand history – the truth is that the North African country is currently looking extremely youthful.

With this young population comes new expectations on banking and financial services – with many from the outside of the country also looking at this hugely profitable market as a place to expand into.

So in this episode, we’re asking: How does the market look today? What challenges are still to be overcome? And what does the future hold for Egypt?

This week's guests include:

  • Momtaz Moussa, Co-Founder & CEO, Lucky
  • Eslam Darwish, General Partner, Nclude By Global Ventures
