Nordic Fintech Snippets – May

Last month, the massive funding boom of the spring calmed down a bit, but otherwise, the good development kept ongoing. Particularly interesting are the public-private initiatives such as the Swedish e-krona pilot and the Finnish Findy network.

Regarding the sustainability trend, we are co-organizing together a free Nordic Fintech Trends 2021 – #Impact webinar tomorrow! Read more and register here.

We are getting back to on-site events in October at the Future Digital Finance Forum on October 13th. So, please save the date, ask for the partnership options, and secure the hatching bird ticket here.
