    Due to the digitalisation of the financial markets, financial technology has grown to be an essential part of today’s modern financial industry. The EURO FINANCE Tech will bring together what belongs together: Start-ups, investors, banks, regulators and the media.

    Its goal is to open minds for a new era of doing business in the traditional banking system and to help those with ideas in finding a “believer” in their story.
    Financial technology is a fascinating narration to be told – the EURO FINANCE Tech wants to take you on this exciting journey. Meet the Who’s Who of the business and join us for discussion, information and networking!

    The event will consist of a series of debates around financial technology’s challenges and chances for the present and the future. Fintechs and banks will present themselves in order to find a new partner in order to change their ways of doing business forever.

    EURO FINANCE Tech: “The Digitalisation of Money – Europe’s Meeting Point for Digital Attackers, Defenders, Regulators and Investors”
