The second Fintech Day Conference took place in Vilnius last Thursday, bringing together local and international experts in the field. The conference covered various topics, including challenges faced by the fintech sector in a slowing economy, financial inclusion, business optimization, money laundering prevention, and climate fintech perspectives.
The Fintech Day was organized by the Financial Technology and Sustainable Innovation Centre Rockit and Fintech Hub LT and was attended by institutional and business representatives from the Ministry of Finance, the Bank of Lithuania, the UK Embassy, Invest Lithuania, Ondato, Amlyze, Sorainen, Accenture, and other start-ups, finance and legal advisors, and venture capital funds. The conference was welcomed by Gintarė Skaistė, the Minister of Finance.
“The conference’s strong program was due to its ability to attract well-known speakers and participants from Lithuania and abroad. The Lithuanian fintech community, although relatively small, had become so mature that it sets an example for other ecosystems.”
Said Lina Žemaitytė-Kirkman, Head of Rockit.
The conference had guests from other countries, including Chris Crespo, co-founder of Nordic Fintech Magazine and former Chief Futurist of Nordea.
“I’m impressed by Lithuania’s achievements in the fintech sector and see many similarities between the Nordic and Lithuanian thriving ecosystems. He believes that the Nordic and Baltic countries have great opportunities to cooperate and are in a unique position to define the future of global finance in the 21st century.”
During the conference, Chris took part in a discussion on the most relevant topics in the sector, including new EU regulations, declining access to financing, and processes of finding and retaining clients. He believes that it will be difficult for fintech companies that offer a single product or service to stay in the market.
The conference was held at the Rockit Centre and was broadcasted live on Youtube. A replay can be found on
