The Fintech Convergence Council (FCC), the committee of Internet & Mobile Association of India (IAMAI), together with National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI), is set to host the Global Fintech Fest (GFF), a first-of-its-kind international virtual fintech event.
The two day event themed ‘Fintech: With and Beyond COVID’ is scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday this week (22-23 July 2020).
GFF is presented by the Department of Economic Affairs (DEA), Ministry of Finance, Government of India and the Reserve Bank of India (RBI). It is also supported by the World Bank and the United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF).
Naveen Surya, Chairman, FCC said: “The bank and fintech ecosystem has the potential to act as ‘agents of change’ for the economy in the post-COVID-19 world. With more than 2000 fintech startups as we speak, India today stands tall as the world’s second biggest fintech hub which puts a lot of onus on us to drive this growth momentum. GFF is our endeavour to bring all stakeholders together to discuss the challenges and opportunities for the BFSI and fintech sector globally whilst sharing ideas on fuelling sectoral growth through collaboration.”
Dilip Asbe, Managing Director and CEO, NPCI added: “The contribution of fintech start-ups in digitalizing the economy is important and hence NPCI wants to act as a catalyst for bridging the gap between the established financial entities and the start-ups. By encouraging open discussion among start-ups and established entities we hope that it will lead to collaborations benefiting the nation.”
With over 50 countries, 100 plus speakers and more than 10,000 delegates, GFF hopes to bring together representatives of banking, financial technology and investment industries to host impactful dialogues, public discussions and a curated exhibition of the latest disruptive technologies.
