One of the fastest growing industries globally, the Middle Eastern FinTech scene was been getting a strong boost in the past months. Recently Dubai-based startup NOW Money raised 3 million AED, following other industry pioneers, like Bayzat and Compareit4me, who snagged $3 million and $3.5 million respectively in the first half of 2017.
Striving to crystallise this ballooning landscape, the FinTech Abu Dhabi is set to start on October 22nd, bringing in a two-day programme of innovation, mentorship and guidance. The event will also feature industry gamechangers and global experts, such as Wamda Capital chairman Fadi Ghandour; Saeed Amidi, founder of Plug and Play, Souqalmal founder Ambareen Musa; Matteo Rizzi, co-founder of Fintech Stage, and Lawrence Wintermeyer, CEO of Innovate Finance.
The summit, crafted through a partnership between Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM), the international financial centre in Abu Dhabi, and PwC, aims to bring
together global and local financial institutions, FinTech startups, investors, regulatory agencies and the business community to network, collaborate and exchange expertise and knowledge in FinTech developments in Abu Dhabi, the wider MENA region and internationally.
