New Europe, New Decade: FinovateEurope and Fintech in the Age of Brexit

The Brexit challenge. Rising economies of Central and Eastern Europe. The crisis of confidence in traditional financial institutions. The growing anxiety over the power of new enabling technologies … how will innovation in financial technology be shaped by these competing interests and demands?

Next week in Berlin, Germany, Finovate will host its first fintech conference in continental Europe. From February 11 through February 13, we will present the innovators, the entrepreneurs, the analysts, and the venture capitalists who will share their accomplishments and insights with our 1200+ audience of financial professionals. Below is a sneak peek at what we have in store over the course of our three-day event. Visit our FinovateEurope page for more details.

Industry Stage Day – February 11

This year FinovateEurope kicks off with an Industry Stage Day. This day begins with a pair of keynote addresses leading into the morning’s special address from Steven Van Belleghem, author of Customers The Day After Tomorrow. The afternoon will feature a variety of tracks with their own keynotes, addresses, and fireside chats on themes such as the digital future, insurtech, open banking, and payments.

Our Industry Stage Day will also feature our new Startup Booster program. Read our interview with Finovate VP and host of the Finovate Podcast Greg Palmer on Finovate’s latest commitment to fintech’s startup community.

Demo Stage Days – February 12 and 13

The second and third days of FinovateEurope will introduce our live fintech demos into the mix. In addition to our demos, we will also feature addresses, power panels, and special analyst insight presentations to help contextualize and examine the technologies – and their applications – on display during our Demo Stage Days. Learn more about the companies demonstrating their technologies in our FinovateEurope Sneak Peek series.

Another new feature for FinovateEurope is our Women in Fintech stream on Wednesday. This special opportunity offers keynote addresses, panel discussions, and networking sessions geared toward discussing and promoting gender diversity in the fintech industry.
