This week's very special show was recorded live at a beach party in Helsinki (no, really), hosted by Finnish bank, OP.
Jason, Simon and Sam bring you three shows in one, as we host an insights panel around the relationships between fintechs and incumbents in Scandianavia, the rise of fintech in the Nordics in particular, why payments are the most popular segment for disruption, and the rise of cashlessness in the region. The panel is made up of Finnish fintech experts, Antti-Jussi Suominen, CEO of Holvi; Jani Tierala, VP of Product at Zervant; banking and innovation expert, Marisol Menendez, Head of Innovation at BBVA and Jamie Campbell from growing UK fintech, Bud.
We also have fantastic thought pieces from Mark Pettit from Visa, Jitendra Kavethekar from Accenture, and Tashi Sylten from Tink Technology as well as interviews with Tuomas Toivenen, co-founder of Holvi and our host for the evening, Kristian Luoma, Head of OP Lab and the reason we got the opportunity to put on this amazing show.
It was an awesome party, complete with cocktails in coconuts, plenty of sand, an actual boat and Pineapple Pay! We were very privileged to be part of it.
