Get Your Ticket

On November 17, 2017, Europe’s fintech scene will gather in Tallinn, Estonia, to tackle the question of how to make the digital single market dream come true by leveraging financial technology.

The list of speakers is packed with prominent fintech and digital market experts and key players: Andrus Ansip, Chris Skinner, Sylvain Bouyon, Zeeshan Feroz, Rain Lõhmus and many more.

 Fintech and digital market experts are more optimistic than ever that there will be a truly digital single market for the European financial sector in the future, enabling fintechs to scale up and to expand throughout Europe. While Estonia holds the presidency of the Council of the European Union there is no better time to seek an answer to the question whether €500 billion added by single EU Financial Market is actually a dream or possibility.
