About the event

The future of Swiss FinTech

In this new era of exponential growth, the curiosity to discover new opportunities is breaking boundaries. Whether founding a startup or exploring a universe of expanding possibilities, entrepreneurs have the inquisitiveness and drive to develop new fintech trends. This is the same energy that enables intrapreneurs to innovate within big companies.

With this spirit, BBVA and Seedstars are hosting the first edition of BBVA Open Talks in Zürich. The event will feature short pitches from the five chosen startup finalists along with a Q&A session, a keynote delivered by John Hucker, President of Swiss Finance + Technology Association (SFTA) on “The future of Swiss Fintech" and a panel discussing "Traditional Banking and Fintech Startups" hosted by Charlie Graham-Brown, CIO of Seedstars; Penny Schiffer, Head of Startup Initiatives at Swisscom; Javier Rubio, director of Business Development at BBVA and Rik Krieger, co-founder of Sonect.
This will be followed by a networking lunch which will offer the opportunity to meet various startups, ecosystem enablers, and other key figures within the realm of Swiss FinTech.

This is the perfect time to connect with a group of hand-picked corporates, ecosystem enablers, startups and government officials along with some of the most promising Swiss FinTech startups.

Don’t miss this exclusive event and the opportunity to have real-time interactions with fintech experts and successful entrepreneurs whilst hearing about some of the most successful fintech startups in Switzerland.
