Event description
Welcome to our FINTECH CRASH COURSE at Messukeskus during SLUSH 2019!

About this Event

Are you a fintech company, a financial organization, or just interested in the industries?

You’ve found an event you shouldn’t miss during Slush 2019!

Fintech Finland Association together with Helsinki Business Hub arrange a FINTECH CRASH COURSE on the Slush opening day.

FINTECH CRASH COURSE is a meeting place for all fintech-minded people in Slush. You will learn more about the fintech industry in Finland and in the Nordics as well as hear stories from real fintech entrepreneurs originating from or having expanded into Nordics: why they decided to do it, how they did it, and how you could avoid the typical pitfalls on the journey.

After a thought-provoking program we will finish up by networking with local and global fintechs, financial organizations, and other industry players.

Agenda:

13.30 The event starts:

Welcoming words and an overview to the fintech industry in Finland – Kirsi Suopelto, CEO, Fintech Finland Association

Where’s the Nordic fintech industry heading to and how to get onboard – the Do’s and Don’ts – Panel discussion starred by:

Hanna Johansson, Community Manager, Revolut – Challenger bank on a mission to conquer the world

Heidi Hurskainen, CEO, Prasos – The leading cryptocurrency broker in the Nordics

Mikko Riikkinen, Founder, 52nd Ventures – An experienced fintech researcher setting up the first Venture Builder in the Nordics

Moderated by Anni Salo, CBDO at LVS Brokers & Board member at Fintech Finland

Q&A – your time to ask anything from the panelists!

Followed by informal networking

15.00 Event ends
