FSDT presents “FinDisrupt”

FinDisrupt is an ambitious initiative that seeks to drive innovation by leveraging end-user evidence and insights to start conversations on how the financial service providers can develop innovative solutions that meet appropriate needs of their users. FinDisrupt seeks to address behavioral changes by bringing user evidence at the heart of product innovation and development in the financial sector.

Our third FinDisrupt session, focusing on innovating Microinsurance and Micropension, will be held from 15-17 March 2017, in Mwanza, Tanzania. The three-day innovation sprint will give participants ample time to connect, collaborate and develop innovative solutions that address the management of risks and alternatives to coping mechanisms.
