SESSION VII: PANEL DISCUSSION: NORDIC BANKS TURN THE START-UP ACCELERATION PROGRAMS AS THE WAY FORWARD INTO THE FUTURE

 

The Nordic Banks have proven that start-up community could and should not be ignored; instead they accept each other as fair market players.

Start-ups are the engines of all industries and fnance is not an exception. Several Nordic Banks have already established and are running acceleration programs
under their portfolio. Danskebank and Nordea got their frst prized start-ups and established a close collaboration with them. It seems that the future progress rests with
the start-up community and making investments in such ‘innovations’ will secure the market progress in the near future and even beyond. The leaders have already
recognized this potential and implemented preventative measures to secure the leading market position.
The hot Panel discussion on stage will be headed by a representative from the Nordic banks, side by side with few selected and prospective start-up companies.

This is a call for the most motivate start-ups to join and secure their stage-spot.
