Amsterdam, The Netherlands, 26 May 2021 – Amsterdam Fintech Week, in short XFW, running from 4th to 11th of June, gathers all stakeholders and players active in the ecosystem of digital finance. The goal is to connect players within the European Fintech space and to involve key stakeholders to participate. While enabling the market to do it’s work, we also want to explore how we can make financial services more accessible, understandable and impactful. You can expect a week full of events, with several highly anticipated keynotes, expert panels, workshops and startup pitches. And it’s a great way to meet the key players in the field, learn from each other and do business.
This year, the XFW21 agenda will be focused on key themes for the fintech industry, with an extraordinary focus on the perspective of customers and society. The theme per day covers Global Citizens (consumers), Born Multinationals (SME), Fintech Union (Europe), Behind the Scenes (all things tech), Society’s Perspective (with a.o. financial crime and ESG) – sparking and shaping discussions between all stakeholders.
Each day will begin with an introduction, a keynote speaker and an industry expert panel diving deeper into the day’s theme. Some of the companies you can expect to hear from are Mambu, Accenture, Plaid, PayPal, Fortech, Buckaroo, Dusk Network, The Software House, NCC Group, Owlin, Onfido, SAS, Allen & Overy, DirectID, and special guests Prince Constantijn of the Netherlands – techleap.nl, Jan Ceyssens – Head Of Unit at European Commission, and Steven Maijoor – Executive Director at De Nederlandsche Bank. After the daystart, organisers from around the ecosystem are putting their best effort
After the day starts, attendees will have access to the online networking area within the event platform, a place for automated one-on-one meetings to facilitate connections.
We are proud to be working with our sponsors and leaders in the landscape: UiPath, Yolt Technology Services, Mambu, FintechOS, Web-IQ Business, Stater NV, Invers, tink, fincog, b.fine and zaion. Our mission is to put forward the Amsterdam ecosystem, well connected to the rest of the Netherlands, Europe and the world, under the spotlight. Time to invite all stakeholders from around the world to meet each other!
“This week is really coming together as one unique event. We are really excited about the response we got from the fintech ecosystem in the Netherlands and across Europe to help shape and participate in the theme-driven program. As you can see, the focus on the customer and what society is expecting from financial services is top of mind, and broadly felt as a story worth sharing. We really believe that our discussions, from financial well-being to the latest insights in how to keep financial services safe, social and contributing to a sustainable environment, are essential today. We are certain that many new ideas and collaborations will be born this week, even though it’s happening online.” – says Don Ginsel, founder of Holland FinTech.
