Africa’s fintech sector has seen the number of start-ups increasing by 89.4% between 2017 and 2021. This is according to Disrupt Africa’s Finnovating for Africa 2021 report. With approximately 57% of the continent’s population without a traditional bank account, digital and mobile financial solutions are critical to shaping a more inclusive African economy.
A start-up helping start-ups
“We see ourselves as entrepreneurs supporting other entrepreneurs. Ultimately, we are a start-up that supports other start-ups, helping our clients build their public voice and face. We will not only grow brand awareness among clients, but their bottom line as well,” explains Clara Armand-Delille, Founder and Managing Director of ThirdEyeMedia.
“Our differentiating factor lies in our ability to offer a multi-market, multilingual approach to start-ups from day one.”
The agency plans to capitalise on growing market potential across the African continent, including investment hubs such as South Africa, Kenya, Nigeria and Ghana.
“We’re fluent in French, English and Portuguese. We are confident that we can offer a fully serviced, cross-border offering. We think and operate on a global scale, a significant requirement for businesses to thrive in a post-pandemic economy. We are incredibly proud to have been selected and supported by Portugal 2020 and we look forward to fulfilling our strategic vision: delivering industry leading communications services from Portugal to the world,” Armand-Delille adds.
