MIT is co-founder of a new and lively event concept for the financial center Frankfurt
The first edition of Frankfurt Digital Finance conference surpassed all expectations. Approximately 400 decision-makers and innovators from the financial and FinTech sector, together with public policy-makers, investors, regulators and scientists came together at Frankfurt’s Zoo-Palais on February 5.
An inspiring opening speech by Eric Podzuweit, founder of Scalable Capital, focused on the future of FinTech and served to kick off a lively series of future-oriented speeches by top-level experts that focused e.g. on Open Banking, Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain, and Payment. To close the event, Tamaz Georgadze, founder of Raisin/Weltsparen, brought the conversation full circle in a motivating concluding speech in which he returned to the subject of the future of the industry. The level of discourse at the conference demonstrated that Frankfurt truly is an innovative and “fertile” ecosystem.
“The extremely positive response to Frankfurt Digital Finance confirms that an ecosystem like the financial center Frankfurt with both established market participants and ambitious newcomers needs exactly such a lively format for open exchange,” says Corinna Egerer, initiator, co-organizer and Moderator of Frankfurt Digital Finance.
“The challenge of creating a new event format at the Frankfurt financial center, which differs in look & feel from conventional financial conferences, we did well with fresh, casual and surprising elements,” said Max Hunzinger, Managing Director of MIT. “We are very pleased with the good feedback that we received at the conference and then also on social media and is also an incentive for the next year.”
