About Our Event
World FinTech Festival at Copenhagen Fintech is focused on impact and sustainability. The Nordics is a region of very innovative countries with a deep and cultural-based focus on sustainability.
Nordic government leaders made a pledge in 2019 to be the most sustainable region by 2030, and according to the Sustainable Development Report 2020 Sweden, Denmark and Finland are the highest-ranking countries on SDG achievement. Four out of ten companies on the Corporate Knights ‘Global 100 Progress Report’ are Nordic. The top two are Danish. The region is turning into a hotbed for sustainable fintech solutions.
A well-functioning financial services industry and technology infrastructure is the foundation. The region is also recognised for the Nordic human-centered design thinking approach – dating back to the 1960s. The Nordic and Danish focus and strengths makes for a very fertile ground for financial technology solutions that accelerate the much-needed push towards a sustainable future. The world can and should learn from the Nordics and the fintech ecosystem in the region. Join the event to find out more and hear about the latest news within sustainability and impact.
