Expanding the Digital Finance Ecosystem (EIT Digital Madrid Node)

Fintech, Digital Finance, Digital, Finance, EIT Digital, Europe, Innovation, Money

Digital Finance companies introduced improvements in many processes and services, such as open banking or invoice financing. Thanks to them, innovations such as instant payments or reduced time-to-cash for SMEs, became widely available.  However, there is still space for improvements, most notably in cooperation between Digital Finance and other financial, but also non-financial e-service providers, that might bring added value to end-to-end offerings.

The event will discuss open opportunities in two sessions: a first, in roundtable format, with a wider focus on building ecosystems, and the second, with several presentations, focused on technical solutions to interconnect previously separated services, where all stakeholders involved might profit in a win-win model.
