İBRAHİM MİSTO ex-VP Business Development - Emergent Payments AFRICA(GHANA)

A seasoned C-suite executive (Fintech, Digital, ICT, Telecom) with 18+ years' experience.

I combine my experience and my exposure to latest business trends to help businesses develop innovative feasible business strategies, drive sustainable growth, and deliver value to all stakeholders.

We have seen developments in the fintech landscape in Sub-Saharan Africa in recent years with the innovative solutions and services fintech providers are deploying aiding acceleration of Africa’s financial inclusion. For the past two years, I am actively engaged in building Africa’s Digital Financial inclusion future, by enabling access to digital mobile financial services, such as micro-loans, micro-insurance, savings management and more.

Before that, I founded a digital loyalty & marketing solution start-up. I also sit on advisory boards of two startups, one offering courier service on demand, while the other is Re-inventing Public Transportation.

I am assisting UNICEF Startup Lab which is a co-creation space and incubator in Accra in partnership with MeltWater Entrepreneurial School of Technology (MEST). We aim to actively engage young startups in the development of innovative, open-source, market-driven products and solutions that help address complex problems impacting the well-being of children and young people, especially the most vulnerable.

I am passionate about coaching the youth and I usually participate in Career Coaching programs, trying to help raising the next generation of leaders in Africa.

I have also previously held leading technology and innovation roles at leading African mobile operators for 15 years. In my various positions, I championed the implementation of vital strategic programs including managed services transformation, customer experience management strategies, 4G & 4G+ rollout, cybersecurity strategies and mobile financial services deployment. I also served on several management committees including Revenue Assurance, Risk & Business Continuity Management. I was also recognized as pioneer executive for the enormous support and leadership skills shown in motivating my team.
