The Future of Financial Technology

The DIFC is making sure that the latest in financial technology, or Fintech, is designed with this region in mind. The DIFC’s new Fintech Hive accelerator has chosen 11 start-ups from around the world, and brought them to Dubai to develop their technology here, with local banks and mentors. 

Over the next three months, the Business Breakfast is putting all 11 start-ups through their interview paces, as they get ready to meet with local investors.

Gareth Lewis, CEO of Delio, continues our conversation on fintech companies coming through HIVE in DIFC. He explains how they help super-rich clients invest in hard-to-find private deals.

Rajesh Prasad, Partner at Semantify, joins us to talk FinTech and explain exactly what the company does. He says they can make it much easier for companies to look at business analytics in a much simpler and more understandable format.

Egor Avertisov, Chief Commercial Officer at Middleware, talks about Fintech. They’ve created a way to give money to your friends and family directly from your credit card.

Raja Al Mazrouie, Acting Executive VP at Fintech Hive, tells us about the DIFC officially launching its FinTech Hive accelerator. We also hear from a number of the selected start ups.
