OUR MISSION

B-Hive aims to build a strong international ecosystem of technologies for financial services (“TechForFin”) where expertise, networking, resources and technology can be shared. Together with our partners (leading banks, insurers and market infrastructures), we pursue the mission of supporting our members in their efforts to deal with the impact of digital technology on the financial landscape. We believe that building bridges between important fintech hubs and the Eurozone enables both European and non-European companies to grow and expand.

SIBOS 2017 Toronto

Sibos is the world’s premier financial services event, with more than 8.000 delegates attending annually from more than 150 countries. What started out as a banking operations seminar in 1978, has grown into the premier business forum for the global financial community to debate and collaborate in the areas of payments, securities, cash management and trade.

After the tremendous success of Money20/20 Europe in Copenhagen, we are thrilled to announce that B-Hive will exhibit at Sibos 2017 Toronto on October 16-19 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

And as B-Hive is a proud exhibitor at this year’s Sibos in Toronto, we would like to extend some exciting opportunities and activities to our community.

Interested in extending your trip to North America? We are also hosting events in New York a few days before Sibos—including the exciting launch of our new hub: B-Hive New York!

Meetups

B-Hive New York hosts meetups to give scale-ups and corporates the chance to network and learn more about specific topics they are facing in the industry. As our members describe it, the meetups and subsequent events offer them opportunities with a company they would not have heard of otherwise, unique access to the right decision makers that would have taken them a lot of time to identify, let alone access, the chance to compress time from first contact to concrete action and a very nice, highly recommendable interaction environment. Get a glimpse of one our events below.
