Connect Europe: attend #execfintech free of charge

If you’re eligible (see requirements below) and want to apply for Connect Europe, send an email to Claudia [at] Deadline for applications is the 7th of February. Read on for details.

Part of the importance that is ascribed to fintech is owed to the fact that its impact is affecting everyone. It truly is a global, interconnected and therefore interdependent system.

From the beginning on, the Exec I/O series worked towards connecting international decision makers from startups, corporations and investors. #execfintech follows this tradition and it always pains us to see foreign startups retract their application due to ticket costs. This why we’re happy to announce our ‘Connect Europe’ program.
With the help of our partners and through the channels of our international network, we’re inviting top startups from various countries and regions to join the conference free of charge.

If you want to meet Europe’s senior executives of leading financial firms, top tier fintech investors and fintech founders in just one day, you should join us for #execfintech in Frankfurt, on March 8th.
