In this latest podcast episode, “FinTech in Africa: Beyond the Hype”, we learn a little more about our host, Darren Franks Founder & CEO of TITC.io and the Co-Founder of the FinTech Association of South Africa.
The Birth of “Talking Success” and Its Noble Mission

In the world of finance and technology, there are countless industry events, each brimming with discussions on topics like financial inclusion, financial literacy, innovation, payment methods, microfinance, lending, and regulatory technology.
