Bringing together players from a host of global fintech hotspots to deliberate, share ideas and look at ways to work together
With a thriving entrepreneurial culture, deep pool of talent, penchant for disruptive innovation, Israel is a globally revered fintech hub.
A relatively small domestic market means Israeli entrepreneurs focus ideas and product designs to be scalable for the global market. Fintech Week gives you direct access to the Israeli ecosystem, and Israeli innovation, as well as the key global players. It gives you exposure to the very latest ideas, innovations and developments in fintech, helping you to position your business. It's an opportunity to meet the success stories of tomorrow and learn about the trends and disruptions that will shape the future of the industry.
With a new decade upon us, and one that could be truly digital and more disruptive, we’ll be asking probing and pertinent questions about the future of fintech. Are there lessons should we be incorporating from our collective, past experiences? Which business models will drive success? Will Infrastructure as a Service enter the fintech lexicon? At Fintech Week we'll look at all of these trends - the business models, the rise of marketplaces, APIs and modular builds, and how to stay true to today's customer.
