Materials from the #ftwv19

Meet. Connect. Innovate. This year’s FinTechWeekVienna has ranged from applications of AI in finance,  blockchain in real estate, the element of nudging in financial literacy, the future of (crypto-) payment solutions, to AMLD5, and heated discussions about the harmonization of the European legislative landscape for faster  & easier scaling. 
While the world is being disrupted by tech, the notion of “banks versus fintechs” is finally biting the dust. Collaboration between FinTechs and Banks is on an upward spiral this year, even FinTechs cooperating with FinTechs – let’s keep it that way. Most important ingredient for that is for both sides to know what they want and to develop clear use cases and business models together. Like in investments, when cooperating, throwing all eggs in one basket could be lethal to success. Therefore, reverse pitches from incumbents and 1:1 speed-dating sessions between partners seeking cooperation rounded up the whole experience including an overview of the funding landscape in Austria. So far so good. But how do you get started? No idea was born over night except when it’s two nights in a row: the FinTech Hackathon has produced new solutions on trending topics such as sustainable finance and retirement options and has been a wonderful closing to this intense week. Thank you to everyone who has participated!
