Buckle up, fintech aficionados! Our monthly "Nordic Fintech Highlights" episode has arrived, and it's a whirlwind tour through January's most electrifying developments in the Nordic fintech scene. Our dynamic duo, Pål Krogdahl and Ville Sointu, are joined by the ever-insightful Janne Salminen, the mastermind CEO of Helsinki Fintech Farm and purveyor of many a bad joke, to unpack the juicy details.
First on our agenda, we delve into Danske Bank's latest venture with Backbase—a partnership less about romantic candlelit dinners and more about a dynamic duo set to revolutionize digital banking like never before. But the question lingers: is this a case of too little, too late?
Next, we dart over to Finland, where MobilePay is making a grand re-entrance, poised to sprinkle some magic on mobile payments. It's akin to reconnecting with an old friend who's just got a fabulous new makeover—you just know things are about to get thrilling.
And just when you thought our fintech feast couldn't get any richer, we explore how Januar and Fireblocks are joining forces to create a digital Fort Knox for digital assets. This is the kind of top-tier security that could make even the most skeptical crypto asset manager sleep soundly.
So, if you're in the mood for a hearty serving of fintech fun with a dash of Nordic flair, you've struck gold. Tune in, crank up the volume, and let's navigate the waves of January's fintech frenzy with grins all around.
