BENGALURU, KARNATAKA, INDIA– Fintech Storm hosts a landmark Bengaluru Fintech & Crypto Summit 26-27 September, to identify and catalyse promising startups in emerging technologies and match them with the investor ecosystem.
Bengaluru, the Silicon Valley of India, has now taken the place of pride as a leading fintech hub with 832 fintech startups tipping Mumbai’s 828.
Supporting the summit are Tata Consultancy Services, Himalaya Capital Exchange, Government Blockchain Association (GBA), Govt. of Maharashatra, Venture Catalysts, Wazirx, Inc42, Lattice80, ICO Holder, 20 speakers from Deloitte, law firms like Nishit Desai, and 20 investors such as IDG Ventures, EMVC, etc.
Speaking on the vision for Bengaluru Fintech Summit celebrating multiple tracks of payments, fintech, AI, online-lending, blockchain & tokenisation, and wealth-tech, Conference Chair Arifa Khan said,
India has the potential to lead as world’s fintech hub because of our unique demographics. There are 60 million SMEs in India and 100s of millions of active mobile fintech app users. India is a market no serious tech company in the world can ignore. This has led to a funding boom in consumer-centric fintech apps such as PAYTM, PineLabs, PolicyBazaar, Lending Kart, Neogrowth, with the total VC/PE funding of Indian fintech firms in 2018 at $1.83billion over 165 deals. We are showcasing disruptive startups to watch for in the coming decade, and further catalysing the early-stage startup funding ecosystem by bringing them together with seasoned investors.
The summit features avant-garde inventions such as Himalaya Capital Exchange (HCX), which provides tokenised platform services for initial public offerings (IPOs) on a global stock exchange. The platform aims to become an alternative to investment bank IPO services, providing companies and startups with a cost-effective and democratic way to get access to global financing. This is the first securities marketplace self-governed by token holders.
HCX is also set out to solve challenges faced by institutional capital in embracing the crypto investing paradigm and is seeking partnerships with digital financing platforms and best-in-class security, audit, compliance, and risk-management service providers to allay the concerns of institutional investors, on its journey to reinvent capital markets and give an alternative to wall street for the first time.
“Blockchain has the potential to stabilise key areas in India like Healthcare, Supply Chain, Banking, and Education. In a country bereft of basic technology infrastructure, blockchain demonstrates the art of the possible” – opined Dr. Vikram Venkateswaran, Editor Healthcare India, a keynote speaker.
