EFSE Supports Fintech Revolution at Future Banking 2019

"Digital, the fourth revolution: Are you ready to face it?" was the challenge posed at the Future Banking 2019 conference in Bucharest. From May 14-15, more than 600 representatives of the financial sector from 15 countries came together to explore the potential benefits to banks, businesses, and society offered by today’s rapid development in new financial technologies, or fintech.

Two days of workshops and panel discussions were rounded out by the "Fire Pitch" competition, where fintech company Moneymailme won over the jury of financial experts, business developers, and investors to take first prize for their innovative money transfer app. The event was organized by the Romanian business periodical Wall-Street and co-sponsored by the European Fund for Southeast Europe (EFSE), which also powered the Fire Pitch and contributed its entrepreneurship and fintech expertise to the panel discussions and the competition jury.
