New Nordic Fintech Alliance launches
Helsinki Fintech Farm, Copenhagen Fintech, Oslo Fintech Hub and Finance Innovation from Bergen (Norway) have teamed up to launch the Nordic Fintech Alliance.
Under their new partnership agreement, the friendly four intend to “increase further cooperation and information sharing on emerging fintech trends and developments”.
Additionally, they aim to help start-ups scale in the Nordics and gain “market traction”.
Atle Sivertsen, CEO, Finance Innovation, says: “It will also help us attract and retain the human capital we need in the region to build a value creation ecosystem going forward.”
Liv Freihow from ICT Norway, and a founding board member at Oslo Fintech Hub, adds that they are “ready to move forward on the development of the fintech sandbox that ICT Norway has initiated”.
Associations and group hugs are nothing new in the warm-hearted and cuddly world of fintech. Just last week, in the beautiful south, 19 players in Italy set up the sector’s first trade association, ItaliaFintech.
