The Digital Transformation of Industry and Finance

The Digital Transformation of Industry and Finance

Industry and finance are two of the most salient domains that are being disrupted by digital transformation in front of our eyes. They are also two among the five categories in which the EIT Digital Challenge is looking for outstanding startups. Besides delving into digital industry and digital finance with some of the leading players and policy makers shaping these domains in Hungary, our event will provide an occasion to learn about the EIT Digital Challenge. For those growth-stage startups ("early scaleups") that step forward to pitch their company in the last segment of the event, EIT Digital’s local business developers offer one-on-one consultation on how EIT Digital can support their companies' business goals.
