Polska Gazeta: Looking to a fintech future with Wolves Summit

by Staff Reporter

Poland’s growing economy and innovative outlook is set to once again draw investors, corporations and start-ups from around the world to Warsaw for an impressive conference: Wolves Summit 2020.

Running on March 23 and 24, the eleventh edition of the international Wolves Summit conference will attract many of the world’s brightest business and entrepreneurial minds to the Palace of Culture and Science.

There, conference attendees will discuss effective funding, the ethical challenges of new technologies and development opportunities for the digital economy.

Some 450 start-ups, 250 investors and 450 corporations are set to attend the conference, eager to focus on diverse topics including effective financing, equality and accessibility in the technological industry; and the development of medical technologies and business ethics, to name but a few.

Wolves Summit 2020 puts the problem of diversity and inclusion, as well as accessibility in the technology industry, very high on the agenda.

In this eleventh Wolves Summit, the organisers will once again be collaborating with BalansPL, an NGO that works to support equality initiatives in the industry.

Of course, the summit is about much more than looking at key and emerging issues, and providing networking and direct peer-to-peer appointments.

It will also host The Great Pitch start-up competition, during which the best projects will be selected.

GTR Ventures is offering the winning fintech an US$10k opportunity, comprising complimentary passes and profiling opportunities at the third GTR Ventures Tradetech showcase competition, which will be held at the Marina Bay Sands hotel in Singapore from September 8-9.

This edition of The Great Pitch will also be unique – for the first time, the judging jury will also grant additional awards alongside GPC.

The winners of The Great Pitch contest will directly enter the semi-finals of the twelfth Innovation World Cup, and will have a chance to present their solutions at top international tech events.

All this is just part of Wolves Summit 2020, which offers a truly fascinating look at Poland’s ever-growing business and fintech sectors.
