foraus has launched a meetup series to build a sustainable fintech community.
Over the last 12 months, we have been approached multiple times to foster the community around sustainable Fintech in Switzerland. That’s why we started a bi-monthly meetup series. We connect people and discuss first-hand challenges with a broad, interested public.
foraus is piloting a “Skunk Series” on Sustainable Fintech with industry leaders starting in September 2018.
We take our success from 2017 and scale up the events at both policy and products levels. Regular exchanges will be set up within small groups of experts from different areas of expertise. In these so-called “skunk workshops” policy suggestions as well as challenges for product and services will be developed.
In 2017, we managed to launch a highly successful series of events leading up to a climate hackathon.
We collaborate with different partners organising hackathons to place product challenges that were identified in the skunk workshops. Following our success from 2017 we design a tailored follow-up for all the ideas in order guarantee continuity and tangible output.
