It’s almost already Easter… and a long weekend to relax and maybe do some Easter Egg Hunts?
Next Thursday, a big fintech event is happening in Zürich: The Fintech 2016 Conference. A wide panel of fintech experts, financial executives and investors will present and debate about innovation in the financial industry. From banking innovation to blockchain, from learnings out of the Silicon Valley to a debate on how to accelerate innovation, there will be a lot of knowledge to collect during this day. You can buy your ticket here (yes, it’s quite expensive…).
Strangely, the conference will be a mix between English and German. My 2 cents: why cannot we just do tech conferences in English in Switzerland? Even if it’s not a problem for me (I speak German), I think it’s a missed opportunity to attract more people from abroad. Anyway, it’s gonna be interesting.
After the day conference, there will be the big show… The Swiss Fintech Award Night! Which of the 4 finalists (Advanon, Knip, Qumram and Sentifi) will be awarded? These 4 finalists stand out from the 100’s of other competing companies who submitted their case some months ago.
During the award night, participants will also have the chance to listen to two big guys in the fintech space:
- Eric Van der Kleij, Co-Founder and Managing Director ENTIQ and former Head Level39
- Scott Robinson, Director Fintech Plug&Play
