We will bring together an elite, international network of Google Launchpad mentors to discuss where the financial sector is heading and how incumbents and newcomers can establish long-lasting businesses amid turbulent change. Three speakers will be taking the stage to address topics such as the future needs of banks (based on a special preview of the 2019 EFMA-Google Cloud report), future-proof business development and predictions on the next FinTech success story.

If you want to learn from world-class mentors and exchange experience with seasoned entrepreneurs about how the financial sector will be reshaped in the upcoming years, then this is the event for you.

The meetup is brought to you in collaboration with OTP LAB, Google, and HubHub. It’s a side event of the OTP Startup Program, so you’ll also have the chance to meet the key people of its 9 cohort companies.
