Event Summary – The 4th event of our Corporate Innovation series with CA Technologies.

More than 50 people joined us at the Impact Hub Viadukt for this afterwork event focused on the topic of “APIs for Fintechs”. The participants had the occasion to learn more about current market trends and challenges from experts of the field. The presentations were followed by an interactive Q&A session.

  2. Key Message: “Fintech is a quickly developing space with traditional big players, and with a very lively ecosystem of smaller players that interface with the established players in a variety of ways. API strategy, design, and management are essential considerations in this context, so that Fintech companies can focus on their core business, and still make sure that they are accessible and flexible, and are in control of how they interconnect with others.”

Quotes from members attending:

“Last week’s event “APIs and FinTech: What’s next” was truly amazing. The theme was topical and raised a lot of interest by the participants, which showed in a lively discussion and a full house. Also, the speakers were outstanding and very competent. I am already looking forward to the next event by SwissFinte.” -(Juerg Steiger)

You do not sell the APIs, but rather a banking / financial services and the platform around it”. – (Romain Porot)
