The global financial landscape is evolving. Whereas the past was about defending verticals, the future is all about communication and collaboration.

Fintech startups need access to financial institutions like banks for infrastructure, services and data. They also need capital from investors and access to an ecosystem of providers of professional services, such as law firms, accountants and software developers.

But it’s not all one-way traffic: Professional services providers want to build relationships and keep a finger on the pulse of innovation, while financial institutions need new ideas to better serve their customer base.

Our role is to connect all players in the Nordic fintech ecosystem to help them work out their own paths forward – and avoid becoming obsolete. We believe that healthy ecosystems need bridges, not walls.
