Connecting the European
Digital Finance Ecosystem

February 2, 2022

What is Frankfurt Digital Finance?

At a time of transition and great uncertainty, Frankfurt Digital Finance gathers key participants in the European digital finance ecosystem. Launched in 2019, Frankfurt Digital Finance Conference has grown into one of the most pre-eminent events of its kind in Europe.

Putting quality over quantity, we bring together top-executives, entrepreneurs, investors, academics and policy makers on a single platform to discuss the topics shaping the future of the financial industry.

We enable exchange of ideas and foster collaboration – helping disruptive companies find corporate partners and investors to scale up faster, and established financial services providers to innovate their business models.

After more than one year of virtual meet-ups, we are more than excited that Frankfurt Digital Finance will return as a live event on February 2, 2022.
