Excitement around the topic FinTech has taken hold in the Rhine-Main-Neckar Region. This is evidenced not only in the number of emerging companies, but also by the dozens of FinTech events. The range and selection of events are especially diverse in Frankfurt. On March 9th, FinTech FFM organized a MeetUp at Frankfurt’s Goethe University. The event revolved around the theme InsurTech. Attendees met for refreshments sponsored by Frankfurt Main Finance and enjoyed presentations from three terrific speakers.
First, Steffen Glomb, a seasoned expert and CTO of Clark, provided excellent insights on the technical side of InsurTech. Next, the CEO of Allianz Digital Accelerator, Bernd Scharrer presented an overview of the Alliance Accelerator program and what young entrepreneurs could expect from it. In addition, Paul Morgenthaler, Investment Manager at Commerz Ventures, shared his experience as an investor in the area of InsurTech. The expert presentations were followed by three very different pitches from companies from Frankfurt, Berlin and South Korea. Credit Shelf explained their new vision for providing credit to businesses. The Exmedio team presented their product which helps to handle clients’ online profiles should they pass away. Another highlight of the evening, was the presentation from the Finotek, a South Korean start-up which specialises in online and digital identity verification.
