GREEK FINTECH HUB

A key initiative for Fintech in Greece and developing economies.

With a focus on enhancing Fintech entrepreneurship, the financing of innovative businesses in the sector, linking Fintech to research carried out at universities and research centres, fostering awareness of and networking with key networks and initiatives abroad, we have designed a number of actions:
• Financing through Fundraising meetups
• Networking with the biggest fintech ecosystems & financial institutions worldwide
• Working in tandem with the European Crowd Dialogue initiative.
• Keeping people up to date through monthly Fintech Talks (1st Thursday of every month from September onwards 5pm EET)
• Hosting of special Fintech Workshops for the creative industries and tourism.
Six key Greek bodies are taking part in an initiative aiming at showcasing the fintech landscape in Greece: National Bank of Greece together with Endeavor Greece, the Onassis Foundation, the Hellenic Chamber of Hotels, the National & Kapodistrian University of Athens, and the Athens University of Economics & Business. And together with these institutions, the European Crowd Dialog initiative.
