Passfolio, the mobile investment app that helps users invest in US stocks with Passfolio Securities and cryptocurrencies with Passfolio Financial, hosted its first-ever virtual conference on August 19, 2021.
Seasoned speakers in the digital and crypto space (Adewale Adetona, Olumide Adesina and Awe Olaleye) were at the Passfolio Virtual Conference to discuss how digitization drives personal finance and investments in Africa. The event averaged over 300 attendees during the 3-hour session. The event is one of many ways the US firm hopes to strengthen its footprint in the fintech space and build a closer relationship with its Nigerian public.
In September, Passfolio plans to partner with Grow with Google to educate its users on digital literacy skills. Two free training sessions will be held on the 18th and 25th of September to provide knowledge and insights on how to grow digitally.

With over 104 million internet users, Nigeria continues to be at the centre of most technological activities in Africa. Like most emerging economies, its people desire more digital education.
