Yes, people are locked in their homes. Yes, there is a global pandemic. Yes, the economy is in freefall. But already FinTech has stepped up and is fighting back.
Over the past few weeks, our unique position at the centre of the industry has given us access to stories of some of the incredible, life-changing solutions already starting to emerge from across the money ecosystem, including:
- Open banking solutions enabling the self-employed to prove their annual salaries
- Digital payment technologies accelerating the move towards a cashless and cleaner society
- Advanced encryption and decentralized platforms for transparency and privacy of medical data sharing
No matter how big or small, we want to shine a light, celebrate and learn from these ground-breaking new solutions and collaborations. We want to give the industry the sharpest, clearest vision on the hugely positive progress being driven by the industry to keep us all safe and secure in these times of uncertainty.
So, if you’re working on, or you’ve heard about, a FinTech project that’s aiming to solve a critical issue caused by Covid-19, we want to hear about it. Share your story via our portal here, or drop us a tweet @Money2020 or tag us on LinkedIn @Money2020 and we will be in touch to get your story to the global Money20/20 community.
After all, now more than ever it’s important to hear about moments of real progress that we can all relate to, be inspired by and learn from as we navigate the way forward together.
Most importantly of course, stay safe and look after your loved ones.
We look forward to hearing from you and will continue to share your stories for as long as you find them helpful, useful and hopeful.
