I ran into “Bank of Future” today in the 2022 FinTech Week Hong Kong #FTWHK https://lnkd.in/gNF–y47. It was wonderful and amazing to see many old and new friends in the FinTech space. More eye-opening innovations from our FinTech ecosystem. Our innovation have not been stopped by the pandemic.
“Pushing Boundaries, Reaping Benefits” is this year’s main theme. I saw traditional financial services are doing exactly like this. Transunion’s “Beyond Credit”, DBS’s “More like a startup, less like a bank”. How about FinTech startups? #DimOrder looks like a POS system and now well beyond POS to solve finance related pain points for their supply chain. They got accepted to the world’s best accelerator, #YCombinator. Arguably, Y Combinator is the factory of Unicorns. DimOrder is our Hong Kong’s honour and proud. #Diginex goes beyond ESG reporting to solve the financing issues of SMEs. And more beyond everything plus the X factor of MetaVerse.
Thanks for Victor Yim #Cyberport, Crystal Fok #HKSTP, Jessica Liu #FTAHK and many other ecosystem enablers to make these all happened. More financial services incumbents are open their doors to collaborate with startups while the government and regulators have new policy and fundings for the fintech ecosystem in Hong Kong.
New initiatives on #CBDC, #CDI, #DigitalAsset, blockchain-based and AI applications plus #MetaVerse with infinite imagination are emerging. The financial services companies in this decade is going to be revolutionized. Or we should ask ourselves “What is a financial services company in 2030?” Stay tuned for more.
Glad to meet quite a few elite FinTech leaders and entrepreneurs there, such as, Marie Claire Lim Moore #Transunion, Ben Wong #DimOrder, Benedict Ang #OCBC, Kevin Leung #LIQUID, Taurus Cheung #ShipAny, Patrick C.S. Fan #beNovelty, Thomson Ho #10Life, Ankit Suri #PlanTo, Ben Wong #SunLife, Jaff Lau #HSBC, Paul Wan #SCB, Culsin Li #BaoBabTre and many other great startups and innovation leaders from #HSBC, #SCB, #BEA, #DBS, #OCBC, and more there as well.
