Fintech District is proud to be a partner of the Paris Fintech Forum 2018, which will be held on January 30th & 31st, at the former French stock exchange market in the very heart of Paris.
The event aims to bring together 2,000+ attendees over 2 days in the heart of Paris, 200+ CEO's and C-levels from bank, insurance, telco, regulators and of course Fintech from all over the world.

The first Fintech-Up of the year hosted in Fintech District will be aout the topic of digital payments. With PSD2 on the doorstep and more and more people using it, the digital payments world will continue to change rapidly. So what will the challenges and trends be like in 2018?

The Italian Fintech Ecosystem is still lagging far behind the vast majority of developed countries both in terms of capital invested and general status of the industry (number of Fintech startups established in the country, aggregate revenues generated and international presence). In this context, the Fintech District wants to be a place where all the Italian stakeholders that work within the financial sector can meet and work together to foster the development of the industry and commit their competences for the achievement of a greater systemic competitive advantage.

We believe that banking and financial activities are at a time of great change that, if properly acquired and valued by entrepreneurs, incumbent and regulators, can drive the revolution in the industry and the engine of economic development.
