Efma’s exclusive Learning Expedition program is heading to Stockholm, the home of major banking innovators and fintech disruptors.
Building on the success of previous Learning Expeditions to New York, Toronto, Israel, Poland, London and Cape Town, the learning journey continues in the Swedish capital where the banking experience is five years ahead of the industry in some other countries..
Stockholm is famous for the innovative spirit and advanced approach of its leading financial institutions. For example, Swedbank is leading the way to a cashless economy and has only one branch that still handles cash in the city. SEB Venture Capital has invested in the fastest growing fintechs. Nordea won the Banking Technology Award for Top Digital Innovation with its Open Banking project. And Handelsbanken is widely recognized for its best-in-class customer experience.
On the fintech and start-up scene, Stockholm is the birthplace of Europe’s first fintech unicorn, Klarna. The start-up is rooted in a tradition of Stockholm-born companies that set the example for future generations of fintech, including iZettle, Spotify, Tink, Skype, Ikea, Betallo and H&M.
Stockholm promises to be one of the best Learning Experiences yet. Those who join us will have a unique opportunity to:
• Visit Europe's number two fintech city
• See how a cashless society impacts the banking industry
• Reveal the secrets of Europe's unicorn factory
• Discover the future of retail banking
• Speak with innovators who put their ideas into action
At the same time, they will experience this beautiful city with its unique heritage and have the chance to taste real meatballs at their source.
Efma's Stockholm Learning Experience runs from 29 May to 1 June 2018.
Reserve your place and experience this dynamic hub of innovative payment, funding, banking and transaction technologies.
Please note that this event is limited to 25 guests.
