On May 17, B-Hive joined forces with Fintech District to host its first joint matchmaking event featuring 10 pitching companies that are active in the digital payments space. Fintech District is an open ecosystem that wants to represent the Italian fintech community. Created in 2017 by SELLALAB and Copernico, it aims to foster the development of Italian and European fintech companies, and to support the growth of the financial ecosystem of the future.
When it comes to the world of financial services, Italy is not considered to be a big player. Milan does not have the aspiration to consider itself as a top destination for financial institutions leaving London but aims at establishing a strong role between the advanced European Fintech capitals.
