The two-day event got underway with a discussion on the challenges presented by digital freedom and how they impact the future of finance to identify the challenges and opportunities presented by FinTech, to engage in dialogue and find cooperation potential among startups, policy makers and opinion leaders resulting in better outcomes. Discussion participants will debate topics ranging from the challenges presented by innovations pertaining to money and investment operations, to the possibilities for making future finance user-friendly and safe for individuals, companies and economies.
Juris Šleiers, Co-Founder of the Digital Freedom Festival: “Our festival’s ambition is to become a platform where talented startups meet big money. We want to promote discussion about the challenges of startup and digital culture outside of business, meaning, promoting dialogue between technology and business innovators and high level politicians. For a second year, thanks to EC support, we’re gathering the most influential decision makers for a discussion on startups in Riga before the festival.”
