A close look on 2016 edition

The main digital finance and fintech event of the year !

By Laurent Nizri, Alteir Consulting CEO, founder of Paris Fintech Forum event & Acsel Vice President.

Altéir Consulting in partnership with Acsel and other key sponsors organized this event with the support of Axelle Lemaire, French digital economy minister.

The Paris Fintech Forum took place January 28th in the French Ministry of Economy and Finance’s Pierre Mendès France Conference center and was  a French & English spoken event with simultaneous translation in all sessions.

Our ambition was to organize with the support of our partners and sponsors the largest 2016 fintech event in France.

Key event data :

  • Above 100 speakers from 12 different countries covering 5 keynotes, 10 panels and 47 fintech pitches,
  • 80 fintechs including 45% non-French startups, represented almost exclusively by their founders,
  • 1 international jury,
  • 8 sponsors,
  • The 2 main digital finance associations as event partner,
  • 10 media partners,
  • 100% ticket revenues paid to a charity fund,
  • 9 month in the making,
  • 600+ expected participants !

Some of our many objectives:

  • Promote French & European innovation capacity in Fintech area,
  • Debate around potential regulation and sector evolutions that would help the development of major European fintech actors. The fintech model should allow more than anywhere else the rise of global players, but not many have expanded outside their borders.
  • The coopetition model between European states to support necessary changes to facilitate the European fintech development will also be discussed
  • Promote and facilitate exchanges between major groups and innovative startups in this area. The Fintech revolution will not destroy banks and other financial players, and reciprocally the banks will not develop without the new entrants. We will encourage links between all actors involved in the forum, and will the sensitive topic of coopetition between incumbents and new entrants in panels.
  • Review fintech innovations from comparable geographic areas, to understand, learn and get stimulated. During the day, companies from 12 countries will be called upon to present their innovations.
  • Debate opportunities and threats around fintech development with involved startups, classical financial institutions, French & European regulators, in order to point out the needed evolutions to support the sector.

Videos of all sessions (keynotes, interviews, pitches, panels) will progressively be available online on our member section. Membership is free, feel free to subscribe !
