Europe - India Conclave New Delhi 17th december 2015 at Hotel Taj Mahal
What: Conclave of CEOs from Europe & India innovating Banking, Payments & Technology

Meet the CEOs
Join the Digital Banking & Payments Revolution!

Join a Special Technology Track on "Transforming Trasportation Sector in India" featuring IOT, Big Data, Telematics etc. London has established itself as the Global Fintech Capital with the most active investors, accelerators, innovation labs, incubators and a record number of disruptive startups based in London. Fintech Storm Series is one of the key eco system builders in UK, having evangelised Fintech and its every vertical over the past year by featuring the hottest startups every month. Most fintech activity in Asia has tended to concentrate in Singapore and Hong kong and not in New Delhi and Mumbai. We are on an audacious mission to revolutionise the adoption of technology in India and this is our humble attempt in that direction!

Europe is accomplished and ageing. India is young, hungry and restless. The west has a lot to learn from India on frugal innovation : not just cheaper, but better. The virtues of synergy when two able partners come together have been eloquently illustrated by none other than India's power-lister, esteemed Union Cabinet Minister Mr Nitin Gadkari who will grace the conference with a keynote address. In his words, if A produces A^2 and B produces B^2, (A+B) produces A^2 + B^2 + 2AB. So our quest is to bring Europe & India together in technology, innovation and entrepreneurship to produce the alpha or 2AB. Mr Gadkari, the master persuader will tell you what India has to offer the world.

We at Fintech Storm have embarked on this ambitious mission of facilitating dialogue between Europe and India to catalyse innovation in sectors such as Banking, Payments and Financial Services - but every epic journey has to start with one firm step!

India is open to business and keen to meet the best and brightest. So we are bringing some of the brightest minds from Europe in the hope of setting off some sparks! We will make sure there are serendipitous meetings that will put many on the slope perhaps to their inflection points. 

There will be over 200 international and indian delegates and 30 speakers with some prominent key note speakers.

We will announce the Inaugural Fintech Storm Hot List Awards to the most promising Fintech companies at the Award ceremony & Dinner Gala.

Come enjoy this electrifying meet!
