Nordic Fintech Snippets – February
It’s time to wrap up what happened in the Nordic fintech and financial industry in February.
Like in January, the month was quiet in terms of investments. On the other hand, the partnership side was very active, especially in the field of payments, and Open Banking keeps providing news on a weekly basis.
Speaking of Nordic fintech – remember to check the upcoming Nordic Fintech Trends webinar that will this time focus on ESG & Data Screening.
We have also launched a new batch of speakers to our flagship event, Nordic Fintech Summit on May 11th.
“Last year was a great event, I look forward to coming back again this year.” – Sarah Häger, Enable Banking
Below you can find the industry highlights, including funding rounds, partnerships, acquisitions, and new launches.
