Twenty-four Swiss FinTech start-ups will present their innovative solutions to the global financial community at the “Swiss FinTech Corner” (booth G54 – Palexpo) at the Sibos convention in Geneva. Arranged through a public-private partnership, the booth provided by the event organizer aims to promote the excellence of innovative financial technology in Switzerland.
From e-banking apps on our smartphones to contactless payment and cryptocurrency, FinTech, or financial technology, is already part of our daily lives. This rapidly developing field offers exciting opportunities for the financial industry worldwide.
In Switzerland, the FinTech ecosystem comprises dozens of start-ups with a unique expertise. To promote their excellence and innovativeness, in partnership with the Geneva Financial Center, AlpICT, Barclays, Temenos and the Swiss FinTech Association, and with the support of Sibos, the Canton of Geneva is hosting a “Swiss FinTech Corner” (booth G54) within the Swiss Lounge (G60) at Palexpo, which will welcome 24 FinTech start-ups.
“Switzerland has an incredible potential to emerge on the global stage as a leader in innovative financial services. The presence of a first-rate financial centre combined with leading-edge infrastructure, research institutions and technology incubators, creates ideal conditions. The presence of Sibos in Geneva offers a unique opportunity to highlight our expertise in financial technology and advertise our excellence to an international audience,” said Geneva State Councillor Pierre Maudet, who spearheaded the initiative.
According to Yves Mirabaud, President of the Geneva Financial Center, “The Geneva financial sector has many strengths, which will enable it to take the lead in the digital revolution currently underway. Geneva stands out for its infrastructure and experience in data management. Thanks to the commitment of its financial institutions, FinTech start-ups and favourable framework conditions, the Geneva financial centre is ideally poised to make innovation its trademark.”
