Venture for Africa (VFA), an immersion programme and talent community created to enable top experienced local and global talent to transition into the African startup ecosystem, is accepting applications to the second cohort of its VFA Fintech Product Management Bootcamp.
The VFA Fintech Product Management Bootcamp is a 12-week programme designed to upskill aspiring and existing product managers in Africa’s fintech space.
Through carefully curated content steeped in context, engaging online workshops with product managers at some of the continent’s fastest-growing fintech companies, case studies, and real-world problem sets faced by VFA’s startup partners, participants will gain insights about building exceptional products for the African market.
They will also gain a better understanding of Africa’s fintech industry and its major players, fintech regulation in major African markets, core fintech business models, fintech product strategies, software product development life cycles, and customer needs and user research.
Ideal participants include mid-level product managers looking to dive into the fintech space and upskill in PM strategy; mid to senior-level business unit leaders from traditional banking looking to switch to working in product management in a tech startup; consultants with experience working on businesses in the financial services industry; and mid to senior-level PMs who have built capacity in more traditional organisations.
