At Fintech District we aim at generating value for the Italian fintech ecosystem by spurring collaboration among its members. We strongly believe that only by leveraging the overall ecosystem competiveness each member can eventually succeed. During the first few months of the Fintech District we worked hard to build up the community that is now made of 46 fintech companies (and counting…) and a growing number of stakeholders (like incumbents, VC, …). More than that, on top of recurring networking events, we have organized and hosted workshop on fintech-related topics (from ICOs to RegTech) as well as private demo day for match-making Corporates and Fintechs.
So, what’s next?
We are working on an ambitious pipeline of initiatives for the upcoming months down the path of knowledge sharing, open innovation, international visibility and capital attraction.
Today we are happy to share with you a preview of the first one of these initiatives.
We are about to launch the beta version of the Fintech District’s mentorship program (hey, believe it or not but we are a startup too). The program wants to create connections between professional, willing to share their knowledge and strengthening their skills by working on innovation topics, and Fintech startups/scaleups facing challenges down the road to success.
We take knowledge sharing very seriously since we safeguard both the Fintechs and the professionals time. We are pooling high-level professionals (the mentorship team) with deep vertical expertise on various topics that can deliver quality advices (e.g. Corporate Law, Corporate Finance, Regulatory policies, Human Resources, Strategy, Enterprise Architecture, …) and we ensure that support request will be addressed to the most relevant expertise.
Do you want to know more about the program? Are you interested in joining the mentorship team and what’s “in it for me” by being a mentor? Do you have comments/suggestions in order to make the mentorship program more relevant? Do you already have “pain points” you would like to address to the mentors?
Please write us at firstname.lastname@example.org or come and talk to us at L12 in Copernico Isola for S32; we will be more than happy to hear from you on this or any other matter that can be impactful on the ecosystem.
Keep following us in order to stay updated on the next steps.
