Get F'IT - Corporate-Startup innovation: Insights and learnings from the Financial Sector

Copenhagen FinTech and the Innovation Network for Finance IT invites you to a session where we explore how both startups and corporates can benefit from working together and hear from experts on their take on innovation tendencies and how to create an innovative culture.

Only a few years ago a lot of hype was created around the evolving Fintech startup scene. Many predictions were made – amongst other – that it was only a matter of time before the new startups would disrupt the established traditional actors because the new players understood the environment and new demands from customers as well as providing cheaper solutions.

Nowadays, we tend to focus on the possibilities that lies within collaboration between established players and startups, which means that the discussion has somewhat shifted from an “new actors stealing markets from the traditional players” to a “how can banks and other financial service providers mutual benefit from working and collaborating with each other in order to meet new customer demands?”
