Financial services technology companies, known as FinTechs, are making moves and currently the latest trend in the financial sector. Across the globe, start-ups are pursuing the goal of digitalization in the finance industry, making it more efficient and customer oriented.
FinTech is a global game that cannot be played in one hub alone. Digitalization is a global process. Even though information travels at the speed of light across the world, the local connection to people is what creates value. Therefore, creating a worldwide network of Fintech hubs is the only way to really accelerate Fintech growth and reduce time to market both for start-ups and large corporates.
The large number of FinTechs in both the Netherlands and Germany presents the perfect opportunity to increase cooperation between the FinTech Communities. Therefore, Frankfurt Main Finance and Holland FinTech will organize two events, one in Amsterdam on 4 November 2016, and one in Frankfurt on 25 November 2016. FinTechs from across both countries are encouraged to participate in these events, present or pitch their company and discover potential cooperation partners, investors and friends.
“Our FinTechs and their innovative power are essential to Frankfurt maintaining its position as a leading international financial center. Supporting their expansion internationally by leveraging our global network of partners is of utmost concern for us. Together with Holland FinTech, we want to bring Amsterdam and Frankfurt closer together,” said Hubertus Väth, Managing Director of Frankfurt Main Finance e.V..
The event in Frankfurt will be sponsored by ING DiBa.
