In a gathering of capital market stakeholders and FinTech experts, last Friday, InfoWARE Limited launched Grow my Kudi - a revolutionary platform that is going to help Nigerians and Africans as a whole gain the skills they need to successfully tackle economic and capital market challenges such as lack of financial inclusion, lack of innovation, capital market participation and the institutional knowledge gap.
Grow My Kudi would provide the environment and tools to encourage a no risk approach to learning and investing with access to real time market data from InfoWARE. This will also serve as a platform to FinTechs to innovate and build their own independent platforms and hopefully serve as a spring board for innovation between FinTechs and the investing public.
At the Launch Mr. Uwa Agbonile, CEO InfoWARE Limited, gave the welcome address saying "We are very excited about the launch of this product, and we believe that with your help, leadership and ownership, Grow My Kudi's integrated sophisticated tools can provide an avenue to encourage a no risk approach to learning and investing using real time market data from InfoWARE and the NSE. This will also serve as a platform for FinTechs to innovate and build their own independent platforms and hopefully serve as a spring board for innovation between FinTechs and the investing public."
"Grow My Kudi and the InfoWARE market data terminal will also contribute to deepening market penetration and ultimately improve investment and financial inclusion in Nigeria.
This is just the beginning of great things to come from InfoWARE. With our upcoming InfoWARE EMSX platform, we will provide a single unified platform API for local and institutional investors and Fintechs to trade via any broker." - Uwa also mentioned.
