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.
