How tech firms can present themselves more effectively to FIs

How tech firms can present themselves more effectively to FIs


Lessons in presenting your tech solution to corporates

Experiences of Frankfurt from an emerging technology businesss perspective

LFollowing a project undertaken by KPMG Matchi and KPMG Nigeria, sourcing potential fintech solutions for a large financial institution, we spoke to Yusuf Sheriff, Senior Associate at KPMG Nigeria, about lessons for tech providers. He talked us through some tips and advice for solutions providers looking to attract interest from large corporates:

Yusuf notes that one of the hardest things for technology companies to get right when presenting their solutions to corporates is to speak about their offerings in an accessible way. It’s tricky to explain the solution without getting very technical, but he advises focusing on showing that the solution is fit for purpose. “Instead of focusing on how your solution does what it does, focus on what is does – that’s what will interest businesses,” he suggests.
