The FinTech Series are free public sessions for the FinTech enthusiasts, experts and entrepreneurs. The aim is to give an opportunity for the FinTech startup community to meet, discuss and share success stories, industry related matters and best practices on how to continue with such a disruption.
As you all may well know, the financial services industry is in the nascent phase of digital transformation. The industry that gave rise to the use of electronic computing in business enters its next stage of technological evolution.
With all these new offerings in the industry, digitization has given rise to a FinTech revolution where the average citizen has decided to take his or her financial independence into their own hands.
The session also continued with Bridg giving the audience valuable insights on the struggles that are faced by a growing FinTech startup, what assistance so they require and also how the governments and regulators can help.
Also present were representatives from Abu Dhabi Global Market, who are actively engaging with startups from the beginning of this year. They’re enabling and empowering them by launching the first ever regulatory sandbox for FinTech startups in the Middle East.
The session ended with the attendees networking and I’ve plans in place to have our second episode sometime during Ramadan.
