The new year started with a bang! We gathered more than 50 cluster members in our new office, The Fintech Hub, to brainstorm where the cluster should concentrate its efforts in 2020. The future is looking bright.

Every now and again it is necessary to take a step back from the daily grind and ask our members if we’re on the right track. In NCE Finance Innovation we work to trigger innovative projects between member companies, and it’s great to have so many people sharing their thoughts and suggestions on the topic.
During an intensive and fun afternoon we brainstormed new focus areas for the cluster and possible collaboration projects. Competence and knowledge, sustainability, data-sharing, KYC (Know Your Customer) and cross-industry collaboration were some of the many topics that came up. Some of the ideas are already in motion, while others are new additions. The next step is to bundle the ideas together and create interesting cases for cross-member collaboration and innovation - so stay tuned!
It is fantastic to see the drive and dedication our members have in making the Norwegian Fintech Cluster an innovation hotspot within fintech. Thanks to all who attended and for setting the course in our further work.
