FinTech Tour 19, a FinTech Saudi initiative encompassing a series of activities all across Bahrain, Saudi, and the UAE, is finally over on a high note.
The mega-event spanned 12 days in total, during which prominent partners from all over the GCC got together to discuss the latest innovations, challenges, and opportunities in the industry. Some of the leading brands and organizations to have participated in the event include Bahrain FinTech Bay (BFB), Microsoft, Beehive, and Astrolabs, just to name a few.
The BFB also conducted a separate session as part of this tour to brainstorm over the opportunities available in the Saudi FinTech space for emerging Bahraini startups.
Speaking on the occasion, Nejoud Almulaik, director of FinTech Saudi, said: “We are very pleased to have so many great partners from across the Kingdom working together to support the acceleration of Fintech entrepreneurship and give everyone the opportunity to learn more about Fintech.”
Worth noting here is that FinTech Tour 2019 is a brainchild of the Saudi Arabian Monetary Authority and the Capital Markets Authority with significant contributions coming from financial industry partners.
The objective behind FinTech Tour is to boost the burgeoning FinTech sector in the Kingdom.
