“We want to make Open Banking megatrend a leap frogging opportunity for local banks in Central and Eastern Europe. It is one of  their chances to be ahead of the pack in digital innovation at the global scale and to serve their local customers. It’s true that nobody knows for sure all the roads of creating value from Open Banking as we are in the pre-history of this revolutionary shift. Our event is an opportunity for the players  to collaborate  together in learning (banks, fintechs, tech companies and regulators) how to make things happen. We hope they  will all understand that supporting innovation to come out from lab to market, through events like Open Banking Hackathon CEE Edition, will accelerate the progress in our financial industry” (Cosmin Cosma, CEO of Finqware, the initiator of this event).
