foraus has launched a public meetup series on sustainability topics 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 volunteers and experts.
We take our success from 2017 and scale up the events at both policy and product level. Regular exchanges in small groups will be set up, both with interested volunteers and with 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.
foraus organises and partners with other hackathons to place Sustainable FinTech challenges.
After our highly successful hackathon and subsequent refinement in 2017, we now collaborate with different partners organising hackathons to place product challenges that were identified in the skunk workshops. Following our experience in 2017, we design a tailored follow-up for all the ideas in order guarantee continuity and tangible output.
