On Friday, December 8, we signed a Memorandum of Understanding with B-Hive, the European collaborative innovation tech-for-fin platform.
Matthew Argent, CEO and Founder of Stockholm Fintech Hub and Fabian Vandenreydt, Executive Chairman of B-Hive, signed the MoU alongside, which states that both hubs mutually agree on the expediency of further cooperation in several areas, including a mutual exchange of trends, research and more. This is one more step in the direction of connecting the nordics and the rest of Europe’s fintech ecosystem, and opens up for collaboration and sharing of knowledge.
A smart gateway to the eurozone
With its headquarters in the Brussels area, B-Hive is functioning as a fintech hub and enabling a gateway to and from the Eurozone. Through their newly set up hubs in New York, London and Tel aviv they establish a global presence to bridge and share expertise and networks. This, combined with Stockholm Fintech Hub’s network in the nordics, we see a future for collaboration for us and our members in the wider Europe.
Covr Security, one of Stockholm Fintech Hub’s members is the first to benefit of this strong collaboration, who is planning to visit Belgium and learn more about B-Hive and its network.
“B-Hive brings together major banks, insurers and market infrastructure players. Together, they work on common innovation challenges and build bridges to the start-up and scale-up community. We aim to put Brussels on the map as the smart gateway to Europe and leverage on the opportunities offered by the digital transformation for the financial services industry. We believe that building bridges between important fintech hubs and the Eurozone enables both European and non-European companies to grow and expand.”
