Head of QIWI Venture
Status:
Industrial partner of Finance&Banking Technologies track
Despite the newness of Finance&Banking Technologies track, it bridged the gap between corporations and startups, and demonstrated high efficiency in solving corporate challenges. We expect this track to become an integral part of GenerationS corporate acceleration program.
Our participation in Finance&Banking Technologies track as Industrial Partner allowed us to see a nearly complete profile of Russian fintech market, which is valuable per se. During the acceleration program the participants of the track advanced their business models substantially and prepared to launch pilot projects with Industrial Partners. It became possible owing to the cooperation between projects and companies based on Plotbed methodology offered by track operator RIS Ventures. In general, we were satisfied with program results – during only 3 months we launched several pilots, tested a variety of hypotheses, and agreed a full-fledge cooperation with one project. The Russian fintech market lacks "bridges" between corporations and startups that allow to establish partnerships and create products jointly.
