Financial services companies

We believe that Fintech companies aren’t simply competition for the existing market, but rather an opportunity for these players to speed up and enhance their innovation capability. Indeed, we know that Fintech disruptors are looking for large corporates to experiment and pilt with. We’ve matched many startups to large corporates for just this reason. This helps the larger, more powerful companies to become more technically savvy and learn to create new products and services for their clients in a lean and agile manner.

For corporate innovators, like banks, insurers, pension funds, pension operators, asset managers, investors and service providers such as accountants, consultants, lawyers,  we provide:

  • Knowledge about worldwide Fintech developments, delivered by website and email newsletters, including:
    • New FinTech technologies, services and companies
    • New regulation
    • Corporate innovation news
    • Venture Capital news
    • Access to Fintech related research
    • Overview of  Fintech events worldwide
  • Access to our online database of Fintech companies, news, research and events
  • Fintech scouting and matching service
  • Regular events to meet Fintech companies and other key stakeholders
  • Member only events for deeper insights and private networking
  • Co-organized events to inform your employees and/or clients
  • Group visits and discounts to several third party Fintech events
  • Support with your innovation strategy & agenda
  • Exposure and access to our Fintech network

And there is much more we do… as long as we believe it contributes to accelerating financial innovation and improving the financial services industry for all parties.

Public institutions

Since the financial sector is often considered semi-public and is highly regulated, we view regulators and governments as well as universities and other public institutions as important stakeholders in the financial services ecosystem. Our knowledge of Fintech is an important source of information about the latest trends, research, startups and partnerships, which public institutions can leverage to shape future regulation and laws. In addition, we act as a sparring partner for public institutions helping them to shorten time and cost to market for Fintech companies.

Please get in touch with us if you want to draw from our expertise and link to our network. Together we can create a better financial services landscape.
