The FinTech markets in Germany and the Netherlands are booming and share some characteristics. Nevertheless, as a FinTech, it is not easy to use one country’s experience and best practices to successfully start in another. Despite many contacts and joint activities between German and Dutch FinTech hubs and associations since 2016, it is still challenging to maintain a comprehensive overview of the mutual FinTech landscapes, including major trends, opportunities, and challenges.
Therefore, FinTech Consult and Contextual Solutions were commissioned to prepare a study about the German FinTech ecosystem in Q3 2022 on behalf of the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO) and the Netherlands Business Support Office (NBSO) Frankfurt am Main.
The study uses unique market insights, research, and interviews with German FinTech ecosystem stakeholders while shedding light on the whole ecosystem. The primary goal of the analysis is to provide a market overview. We have included here the preview of the study.
