711. Focus: Using Super Apps to help create new economies, with Sitoyo Lopokoiyit, CEO of M-Pesa

Our expert host, David Barton-Grimley, is joined by a fantastic guest from M-Pesa to continue exploring the world of Super Apps.

In the newest strand of Fintech Insider, in association with Visa, we’re taking a burning question from financial services across the globe - and really putting it under the microscope with explainers, expert panels, and in-depth interviews all to bring the global community into focus.

In this episode, David Barton-Grimley sat down with Sitoyo Lopokoiyit, CEO of M-Pesa to continue exploring the question set out in our previous Focus episode: What is stopping Super Apps from succeeding outside Asia?

Join us to find out what particular needs the African market has for a Super App and how strong is the appetite from customers, if the number of founders and companies looking to build one has grown in the past couple of years, and if 2023 is the year of Super Apps.

All of this, and so much more!
