Societe Generale’s strategy in Africa focuses on innovation. Building on the knowledge that Africa is inventing the bank of the future, Societe Generale aims to be a key player in this revolution, through partnerships, innovation Labs and innovative services.
Alexandre Maymat Head of Africa for Societe Generale
The Lab will enable us to measure our capacity for innovation. We must be able to try out new trends and join forces with innovative start-ups to test them out.
New services in Africa
Innovating on the African continent
Africa is reinventing the consumption trends and patterns of the bank of the future. Going beyond what “traditional” banks can offer, high bank account and mobile penetration rates boost the development of new services and digital solutions such as electronic currencies and e-wallets. Digital technology offers Africa the opportunity to speed up its growth and enables Societe Generale to improve the experience of our corporate clients and private customers.
Embracing the African continent
Taking part in innovative projects
Open innovation, greater interaction and new partnerships are all opportunities for redesigning financial and banking services and supporting entrepreneurship in Africa. By opening Labs, launching hackathons and forming innovative partnerships, we can increase our awareness of the world and embrace the African ecosystem.
