The future of FinTech
Join us for a seminar to listen to speakers from the upcoming book project ‘FinTech: Accounts of Disruption from Sweden and Beyond’ present their findings and discuss the future of FinTech in Sweden.
The Swedish FinTech landscape has grown rapidly in recent years, with companies such as Klarna and iZettle, gaining international acclaim. However, new companies are starting up at an increasing pace, and the technological disruption that they generate are enabling end-customers and companies to access new and better financial services.
During the past six months, a team of 22 authors have co-written a book on the rise of FinTech with a particular focus on the Swedish market.
This book is a part of a three-year project from 2015 to 2018 financed by IIS – the Internet Infrastructure Foundation. The seminar will be held in english.
IIS, Internetstiftelsen and SSE, Stockholm School of Economics (Handelshögskolan) invite you to take part of the findings from the project and discuss the future of FinTech!
