The “FINTECH: a talk with innovators on the frontline” event was organized by LUISS EnLabs, Lazio Innova and StartUp Lazio, at the LUISS EnLabs headquarters, the Startup Factory, in Rome.
Our event covered a detailed talk on the state-of-the-art of the Financial Technology sector, one of the fastest growing online industries. The participants got the chance to better understand the industry from speakers with hands-on international experience in the Financial Technology sector.
The key speakers were: Matteo Rizzi – from SBT Venture Capital, Cristiano Esclapon – from SiamoSoci/Club Italia Investimenti II and Prof. Raffaele Oriani – from the LUISS Guido Carli University.
Participants were very satisfied with the newly gained knowledge on a sector that is thriving in today’s modern digitalized economy.
TWIST DIGITAL is the H2020 action, under the Startup Europe umbrella, that provides Transregional Web Innovative Services for Thriving Digital and Mobile to web entrepreneurs aiming at scaling up and competing in the global market around 4 interconnected web entrepreneurship startup ecosystems and hubs (Rome, Lille, Stockholm and Warsaw).
Startup Europe aims to strengthen the business environment for web and ICT entrepreneurs so that their ideas and business can start and grow in the EU. Startup Europe contributes to the Entrepreneurship 2020 Action Plan.
Startup Europe's objectives are:
  • to reinforce the links between people, business and associations who build and scale up the startup ecosystem (e.g. the Web Investors Forum, the Accelerator Assembly, the Crowdfunding Network) 
  • to inspire entrepreneurs and provide role models (e.g. the Leaders Club and their Startup Manifesto, the Startup Europe Roadshow)
  • to celebrate new and innovative startups (with Tech All Stars and Europioneers), help them to expand their business (Startup Europe Partnership, ACE Acceleration Programme), and give them access to funding under Horizon 2020.
