At Money 20/20 Conference – Never Before Seen Gathering of Lithuania’s Fintech Communityby Fintechnews Baltic June 8, 2022
On 7–9 June, Europe’s largest Fintech conference will bring together the world’s most successful Fintech representatives and investors. This time they will be joined by a large team from Lithuania. For the first time, “Money 20/20” will mobilise and co-present Lithuania’s Fintech community − startups, associations, and institutions.
At the event and expo in Amsterdam, under the name “LITHUANIA” will be presented Invest Lithuania, ROCKIT, Go Vilnius, Fintech Hub LT, EMBank, Fininbox, Ondato and Velmie. Also more than 100 representatives from 25 Lithuanian Fintech companies will also travel to attend the conference.
“Money 20/20” is supported by Fintech industry players such as Mastercard, Stripe, and Goldman Sachs, who participate as well. During the conference, among such giants as the heads of JP Morgan, IBM, VISA, Kraken, and Google, Simonas Krėpšta, a Member of the Board of the Bank of Lithuania, and Liudas Kanapienis, CEO of Ondato, a company specialising in AML solutions, will also give presentations.
According to the representatives of the Lithuanian delegation, such a stand is being set up at “Money 20/20” for the first time, as only individual companies or institutions used to travel there. This shows the strength of the Fintech community and the increased desire to be seen and, of course, to attract more investment to Lithuania.
“Fintech remains a top priority for Lithuania, attracting investments and new companies to the country. Our goal as one of the largest Fintech centres in the Baltics is to help such investments come to Lithuania, to show the maturity and cooperation of the Fintech ecosystem,”
says Lina Žemaitytė-Kirkman, Head of Rockit – Home of Fintech and Sustainable Innovation.
Elijus Čivilis, General Manager of Invest Lithuania, also draws attention to the maturity of the Lithuanian Fintech ecosystem that is so attractive to international companies.
“The dynamic and energetic talents of Lithuania and the favourable regulatory framework allow us to go hand in hand with the best European and global tech players. This is also confirmed by the success stories of many fast-growing companies here,”
says Mr. Čivilis.
Money20/20 was founded in 2012 by Payments and Fintech veterans from Google, TSYS and Citi. They broke the stereotypes anchored in snoozefest business conferences, and designed an unparalleled experience built for the industry, by the industry. It is one of the most important expos that brings together investors, renowned speakers, innovators, and initiators of the financial technology revolution.
On June 7 over 7000+ people will join our 300+ speakers who will stand tall on our 6 stages that will charter the uncharted in Fintech and shape the future of the industry for the years to come in Europe and beyond.
