Fincluders at Money20/20 in Amsterdam
The Money20/20 conference starts today in Amsterdam – with four Fincluders alumni in attendance.
Money20/20 is Europe’s largest industry event for financial technology and financial services. By joining this marketplace of ideas, these four young Fintech companies will connect with other leading Fintech innovators and make contact with some of the most influential players in their field.
Participation in the conference represents the next Fincluders stage for these high-potential entrepreneurs in a journey that began with the Fincluders Startup Challenges of 2016 and 2017. Established by the EFSE Development Facility (EFSE DF) and the SANAD Technical Assistance Facility (SANAD TAF), the Fincluders Network aims to support promising new businesses who use Fintech to extend financial inclusion toward underserved groups. The network’s most recent acceleration initiative, the Fincluders Bootcamp, was held at the end of 2017 by the EFSE DF and SANAD TAF in partnership with Village Capital and the Luxembourg House of Financial Technology to provide startups with mentorship, investment readiness coaching, and business development. Now, Bootcamp alumni are attending the Money20/20 conference to continue helping them establish their businesses across the international Fintech sphere.
