F10 FinTech Hackathon – Meet us in Singapore! 21st to 23rd of September 2018 | more info
Discover our perspectives in the Startup sphere
Program period: December, 3rd, 2018 to May, 16th, 2019 Applications close: September 9th, 2018 Applications are currently being accepted and reviewed from innovative tech startup firms who are solving problems in the financial, banking and insurance industries.
Fifteen entrepreneurs in nine Fintech subsectors have entered F10’s 6-month ‘boot camp’ to become viable enterprises. Eight are Swiss, seven hail from six other countries, three are corporate spinoffs, and all are raring to succeed.
Switzerland is one of the few countries that has acknowledged the growing interest in crypto currencies and the blockchain technology that powers them. FinTechs seek to revolutionize the financial system in making it securer, transparent, faster, and cheaper. They might have found their startup paradise in Switzerland. Especially startups of the crypto currency space can find a working and nourishing environment in Switzerland’s “Crypto Valley” in Zug.
As part of our global startup scouting tour, we went to the FinTech festival in Singapore to meet new startups and invite them to our accelerator program. Startups, technology companies, investors, financial institutions, and research institutions came together to discuss and celebrate fintech for one week.
The financial industry – banking in particular – is strongly influenced by new technology and FinTech startups. The swift FinTech solutions empower every citizen around the world with simple mobile services and products by digital banks.
The connection of static, physical objects and making them engage and smart is increasingly entering various sectors – and it does not stop at financial services. But how exactly can IoT and finance be combined?
Digital Transformation is a development we see across all industries. The banking sector has increasingly been challenged by emerging FinTech companies, who attract the incumbent’s customers by offering easy-to-use and frictionless experience in their personal banking.
