Fintech Foresight – Opportunities in Europe and Nordics
Time11:00 - 13:00
We are inviting all Finnish Fintechs and companies interested in working within the financial sector to our online lunchtime event on December 9th. The event is divided into two topical sessions: European growth opportunities and a focus on Norway. You can register to either both sessions or just one.
In the first part of the event, we are looking into European growth opportunities on the Fintech market with an insight study we have commissioned from Frost & Sullivan. The insight study looks into European Fintech hotspots and focuses especially in the payments, financial software, and financing sectors, key trends and market impact of regulation, and how these together translate to concrete growth opportunities.
The second part focuses on Norway and acts as a kickoff for our upcoming fintech delegation to Norway in March 2022. Cicero will give insight into the Norwegian fintech market, and two of the biggest banks of Norway, DNB and SR-Bank, tell about their needs and challenges for which they are looking fintech solutions.
Event is hosted by Business Finland.
