Vienna is music, Vienna is tech, and Vienna is FinTech!

Join Vienna FintechWeek 2018 from November 16th to November 23rd and experience Vienna’s rising FinTech stars, learn about hidden champions and connect with our ecosystem stakeholders! Given the momentum and pace of Vienna’s FinTech ecosystem of the last years, the Austrian FinTech community might not be an insider tip very much longer. Only one indicator might very well be that Vienna just entered the ranking of global FinTech hubs issued by the Institute for Financial Services Zug as a newcomer at number 15. Find out more...

The initiators of the FinTech Week Vienna are happy to provide a platform to all who contribute to our ecosystem and to all, who want to get in touch with it!
Vienna FinTech Week is an initiative by Fintech Austria, the Austrian Bankers’ Association, FINTECHMATTERS and Vienna Business Agency.
