In Europe, fintech is more than a buzzword. That’s why the continent an ideal locale to launch the Finovate 2020 series of fintech forums. A recent study (http://nnw.fm/MX1q3) reports that “fintech is Europe’s largest investment category (representing 20% of all global investments) and the sector is more active in Europe than in Asia and the USA.” So, come February 11-13, 2020, the Finovate 2020 season commences with FinovateEurope 2020 at the Intercontinental Berlin in Germany.
The leading conference will bring together more than 1,200 banking and financial executives, investors, industry analysts, regulators and fintech fanatics from across Europe and beyond to discuss, debate and demo. The best fintech Europe has to offer will be on display through unique, short-form demos, complemented with addresses by over 150 influential speakers, holding forth on the latest fintech developments and trends.

Europe’s unicorns – private companies valued at $1 billion or more – account for roughly 12% of the 421 unicorns worldwide, according to one industry analyst (http://nnw.fm/ZdI3v). Many are in fintech, including Swedish payment company Klarna, valued at $5.5 billion; British supply chain finance company Greensill, whose market cap is $3.5 billion; and N26, a German mobile banking platform, also with a valuation of $3.5 billion. Despite their lofty valuations, these fintechs all started from humble beginnings, like many of the companies scheduled to present at this year’s Finovate gathering. For years, innovative startups have used the Finovate series of events to win backers and woo investors.
The Finovate conference series has developed over two decades. In 1997, Jim Bruene launched the Home Banking Network (HBN), the first personal financial management-based online banking system. Bruene, a former banker, worked with Chase, First Chicago, Michigan National, Microsoft, U.S. Bancorp and Wells Fargo to develop HBN. He went on to launch a subscription newsletter, known as the Online Banking Report, now renamed Digital Banking Report, which was an important voice in the nascent fintech sector. In 2007, the first Finovate conference season had its debut. The series has since become an important fintech forum.
After FinovateEurope 2020, the 2020 Finovate conference season will continue with Finovate Spring, May 27-29 in San Francisco; Finovate Asia, July 7-8 in Singapore; Finovate Fall, September 14-16 in New York City; and Finovate Middle East in Dubai, with dates to be determined.
