Presentation materials:
Why international banking giant would be interested in Oulu?, Sari Heinonen, Barrabes
Blockchain is more than Bitcoin – potential uses in industry, Kristiina Valtanen, VTT

Banking, finance and insurance business are facing big changes. The disruption is driven by new players like Apple, Google, and Alibaba, new liberal regulation by EU as well as new technologies, most notably blockchain, and disturbances caused by Brexit. Therefore, financial technology is among the fastest growing areas where business opportunities and exciting new technologies intersect!

Oulu has excellent opportunity to become a major European centre of financial technology. Both strong traditional enterprises and start-ups have chosen this area. Oulu has very strong technological competences and academic knowhow in software and communications as well as lot of Nokia Money heritage and excellent tradition of local co-operation.

Oulu Innovation Alliance has chosen financial technology as one of the focal activity points. As a first step, a series of networking events is organized. The Financial Tech Breakfast events are brought to you by Technopolis, Oulu Innovation Alliance, VTT, and Business Oulu. We will have two brief talks to get the discussion and networking going on, but the main role is with you, be active, network and benefit from this opportunity!
