Join the B-Hive & the Banking Technology Network of WSBI-ESBG for a Tech4Fin Pitching Session in Vienna on 3 December!
Let’s look into New Opportunities of AI, Machine Learning & RegTech.
Collaboration is on the rise: Savings and Retail Banks in Europe and globally are on a quest to boost their internal innovation but also expand their reach towards external ecosystems and startups. Building meaningful collaborations can unlock new potential and create solutions to integrate new technologies into financial services. Banks and FinTech start-ups are thus often doing better by cooperating and creating synergies from their complementarities rather than by competing. At its core Innovation and Digitalisation can help provide customer-centric services, enhance efficiency and expand the reach and relationship with clients. AI, Machine Learning and RegTech are highly promising fields in this regard.
B-Hive & WSBI-ESBG (international Savings & Retail Banking Association) are joining forces to bring together banks and FinTech solution providers and startups to dive deeper into these topics. Join us for the Tech4Fin Pitching Session in Vienna on 3 December and see what Technology for Finance – what we call Tech4Fin – can do for banking.
Several FinTech startups and solution providers will take the stage to pitch their latest ideas on AI, Machine Learning & RegTech.
