The first Fincluders Startup Challenge outside Europe is set to feature prize money of up to USD 15,000 for fintech entrepreneurs with solutions and concepts for spreading financial inclusion in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), says the event’s organizer, the Technical Assistance Facility of the SANAD Fund for MSME. 

The event, modelled on the highly successful first installment of the challenge held in Berlin last year, is scheduled for 3-4 May in Amman and seeks to identify and promote fledgling fintech companies offering products for expanding access to finance in MENA. To be fully anchored in the region, SANAD has secured the support of Jordan-based Oasis500, a local fintech vanguard.
