The Ecobank Fintech Fellowship

The Ecobank Fintech Fellowship is designed to provide opportunities for Ecobank Fintech Fellows to explore commercial partnerships and product integration deals with the Ecobank group. All emerging finalists from each cohort are inducted into the Fellowship annually, offering them the opportunity to engage Ecobank Executives on possible win-win commercial opportunities over an extended period.

The Fellowship program is situated under two (2) overarching segments - the Bootcamp which comprises preliminary sessions with Ecobank Executives, and strategic VC Partners and subsequently, the commercial engagement phase which launches integration dialogues between the Fellows and Ecobank Business Leads.

Since its inception in 2017, the Fellowship has seen 6 cohorts: 2017, 2018, 2020, 2021, 2022, and 2023 cohorts.

The Bootcamp

The Ecobank Fintech Fellowship kicks off with a Bootcamp which introduces the Fellows to the universe of Ecobank partnership and integration opportunities, as well as the processes and requirements relevant for initiating and navigating potential partnerships with the Ecobank Group.

The Bootcamp begins with sessions with Ecobank Executives who introduce Fellows to current partnership opportunities within Ecobank’s service landscape, the detailed integration processes, and compliance & risk management requirements.

Following these preliminary sessions, the Bootcamp launches into sessions with Ecobank Business Units’ Heads who expand on leveraging existing Ecobank digital offerings for further collaborative opportunities. The Bootcamp also connects Fellows with Investors and Strategic Partners who provide insights and coaching for fundraising exploration.
