Friday 14 June 2019 – Last week Kriek organized the Amsterdam FinTech Forum for the second time. Nearly 250 delegates attended the event over a 2-day period. Keynote speakers Duena Blomstrom and Paolo Sironi kicked off the days, each highlighting the importance of the people factor over technology when it comes to the future of financial services.
The event concluded with a startup pitch battle between some exciting Fintechs from Netherlands, Belgium, Italy, UK, USA and Ukraine.
