Join me in Wroclaw on 7th of December at 8pm for an exciting Meetup and pitch off dedicated to blockchain, fintech, and banking. Fintech is eating the world and the CEE is the heart of that movement. We will run a pitch off and I'll be giving away some cool prizes including tickets to Disrupt Conference.
I hope to see you there!
