“Money 20/20 is one of the most important financial technology fairs in the world, and therefore it is important that Estonian companies are out there together with an Estonian joint stand. In addition, our companies and the Secretary-General of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Communications will perform on the big stage of the fair, which will further enhance our presence,” said Marge Pihlapuu, Head of International Sales at Enterprise Estonia.

According to Taavi Tamkivi, the head of Salv Technologies, which provides banks and financial technology companies with anti-money laundering technology, their participation in the fair has three goals. “First of all, growing our brand and reputation in the eyes of an important target group. Secondly, strengthening our existing network of contacts and making new contacts. And thirdly, following the trends in the field by listening to the speeches of experts and helping the development of the sector through participation in various workshops,” said Tamkivi.

Modularbank introduces a modular cloud-based banking platform that covers all retail and commercial banking processes and enables banks, financial technology startups, and companies in other fields to start offering new financial solutions to their customers. “Because our platform consists of separate modules, each company can choose exactly the modules it needs, depending on the service it wants to offer its customers, be it loans, payments, accounts, cards or anything else,” said Rivo Uibo, co-founder and board member of Modularbank.

Estonian companies Modularbank and Veriff and the Secretary-General of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Communications Ando Leppiman will perform on the Money 20/20 big stage while e-Estonia is organising three Digital Discussions.

“This year we are going to Amsterdam with an even more special feeling because our CEO Vilve Vene has been invited to the stage. Being selected by the Money20/20 panel less than three years after the company was founded, together with the top financial worlds such as Thought Machine, Crosscard, and Deutsche Bank, is a huge recognition for us and proof that the hard work and commitment of the entire Modularbank team has paid off,” said Rivo Uibo.

Money 20/20 Europe is Europe’s largest financial technology event focusing on innovation in payments and financial services. In 2019, the conference was attended by more than 6,300 participants from 2,000 companies and 82 countries.
