Elli Yiannakaris is from the Mauritius Africa Fintech Hub and was one of the key players in putting up the first-ever Africa crowdfunding experience in Mauritius. The event aims to support Fintech in Mauritius as well as Fintech in Africa through innovative crowdfunding, future thinking and lending opportunity for entrepreneurs providing them access to financial solutions.
Being the child of an entrepreneur and having been involved in entrepreneurship for the last ten years in South Africa, Elli believes that crowdfunding is the way forward, for now, and for the future. She came to Mauritius as she saw it as an opportunity to be part of an organization that is at the forefront of supporting entrepreneurs. She is passionate about her work because, according to her, Fintech brings financial inclusion for people in Africa.
