Top investors, entrepreneurs and developers from the tech ecosystem will meet for the second edition of the Startup Grind Barcelona conference, on November 14th, in a day full of exciting topics to be debated: from Blockchain and its applications in the banking industry, to the rapid growth of the Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) and the latest trends with venture capital. Difitek will be there, are you joining?

As much as 900 innovators are expected to join this event part of Startup Grind, a global startup community designed to educate, inspire, and connect entrepreneurs, powered by Google for Entrepreneurs, with local chapters in 300 cities around the world.

A good set of A-level speakers already confirmed, including Alexis Bonte, Partner at Atomico, Sofia Benjumea, Head of Campus Madrid at Google, Clancy Childs, CTO at Dow Jones, Lorenz J√ľngling, Co-founder and CPO of N26, Ryan Bubinski, Founder of Codeacademy, Dhiraj Mukherjee, Co-founder of Shazam and Orit Kopel, Co-founder and VP Business Development of Wikitribune and Jaime Novoa, Investor at K Fund.

From the evolution of work, with remote workers and offshoring developments, to the growing concerns around fake news, there will be definitely plenty of materials up for discussions. But what we will follow with more attention will be the debates around the radical transformation happening in finance, from the flourishing of digital banks like N26, to the increasing expectations, and the first practical pilots, around the use of blockchain in banking, as well as the rapid evolution of ICOs.

At Difitek we make it possible for anyone to launch and scale regulated financial applications, with a compliant, bank-grade secure and efficient technology framework. Since day one we have always worked with forward-thinking businesses from all over the world, with the US, the UK and South East Asia as the most active regions. One of the trends that we are currently seeing, is an increasing interest coming from Southern Europe, where despite the slower growth with fintech in the early days, the industry is now gaining traction, showing some notable developments.

We are now really looking forward to this event to discuss with other innovators the present and future of financial services. If interested to have a chat, get in touch and meet us in Barcelona.
