Event description


FinTech & Telecom Deals in Europe

Mobile and Telecom-driven financial services for the “unbanked” are fast becoming the norm in emerging markets, but have yet to reach scale in Europe.

However, we see several factors coming together that could change the game:

  • the rise of young and mobile millennials as well as a tech-savvy older generation in Western Europe

  • a young, “underbanked” Central & Eastern Europe

  • a slew of recent deals (see chart) and

  • the EU Payment Services Directive 2 (PSD2) legislation coming into effect by January 2018.

An invitation-only initiative run in collaboration with respective sector experts, FTF On Tour | FinTech meets Telecom, is the first to bring together FinTech startups with investors, telecoms and financial institutions looking to tap into these emerging opportunities in Europe.

Fifteen startups with the most compelling propositions in this space will be selected to present to an invitation-only audience of leading investors, telecoms and financial institutions on 23rd Mar. 2016 at the Airport Club, Frankfurt Airport.

Panel discussions with those at the forefront of this space will highlight the potential opportunities, challenges, the learnings so far and what to expect in the next 6-18 months.

Startup applications and nominations are open: request your application form at info@techfluence.eu (Subject: #FTFTelecom)
