High technologies in the field of banking and financial products and services.

The Fintech track will combine projects in the area of financial technologies, services and e-commerce.

Fintech is a rapidly growing industry of IT solutions that improve the efficiency of financial and banking services. Today there are more than 7 thousand active Fintech start-ups in the world, although in the modern form the direction appeared quite recently — approximately in 2008. The first steps were made back in 1950: then a non-cash payment system was created, which replaced check books. Initially, the card was just a piece of cardboard, eventually it was applied to the number and name of the owner, then added magnetic strips and chips. In the 2000s, mobile wallets and payment applications appeared.

The FinTech GenerationS-2017 track combines projects in the area of financial technologies, services and e-commerce. For the first time ever, the Fintech direction was launched in the accelerator in 2016.
