Women in FinTeCH
Financial technology is a rapidly advancing industry with a huge growth potential for new business, providing numerous opportunities for monetization. Expertise and information exchange are crucial to keep track of developments. One of the goals of the Women in FinTeCH initiative is to complement existing activities with an important underserved perspective, in the wider support of commercializing ideas and growing them into successful and sustainable FinTech-Businesses.
Additionally, women are more likely to opt for flexible working arrangements, which are currently still uncommon amongst large corporations.
