This is the fourth time we are bringing the Danish fintech ecosystem to Singapore and our second Singapore FinTech Festival – and we love it!
Since our first MoU with Singapore FinTech Association (SFA) in 2017, we have brought more than 80 people to Singapore (founders, entrepreneurs, investors, financial institutions and universities). More than 45 companies have joined us in Singapore. The Danish minister for Industry, Business and Financial Affairs visited Singapore in September 2018 and we signed our second MoU with SFA, creating what we believe is the World’s first FinTech Bridge – DanSing Bridge – with real content. So, to the question, if we are dedicated the answer is YES!
For those of you that is not that familiar with Copenhagen FinTech, we combine the visionary ideas of fintech entrepreneurs, the experience of the established financial sector, the desire for societal benefits of the public sector and the research from the universities with the overarching purpose of building a thriving fintech ecosystem for the benefit of all stakeholders.
There are striking similarities between Singapore and Denmark. We consistently rank among the most innovative countries. We are also both leaders in ease of doing business. Denmark and Copenhagen FinTech are the Nordic gateway to Europe, so consider yourself invited to join us in one of the most liveable cities in the world: Copenhagen*
