By invitation of the Global FinTech Research Institute in Seoul, Jochen Biedermann gave a keynote at the symposium Globalization of FinTech in Korea. Top-ranking Korean politicians took part in that event. He presented the results of Frankfurt’s FinTech initiative Dialogforum FinTech Frankfurt Rhein-Main and introduced Frankfurt’s new FinTech centre, which will open in October. Furthermore, he motivated next steps in strengthening the FinTech partnership with Korea. Dr Biedermann also visited several Korean FinTech companies and encouraged them to expand their business to Europe via FinTech hub Frankfurt. With Finotek, a leading Korean FinTech company has already a presence in Frankfurt Rhein-Main and will send a representative from August onwards.
In a second keynote, Dr Biedermann spoke about international developments in FinTech and Blockchain at the Korean Computer Congress in Jeju-City.
The next visit of a Korean FinTech delegation to Frankfurt is planned for October.
