Dinner in Munich with HVB 2016
This year’s first Fintech Ladies Europe dinner was held in Munich. Host of our event was the HVB who did not only provide their great location but also a splendid dinner for all participants.
Upon arrival, the guests were able to enjoy the perfect spring weather on the HVB Gästecasino’s very own terrace. Afterwards, all attendees gathered and enjoyed first drinks as our MD Dr. Carolin Gabor and HVB’s Head of Corporate and Digital Reputation, Anne Gfrerer, welcomed the leading female founders and professionals of Munich’s Fintech and Insurtech spheres. They briefly presented the Fintech Ladies Europe initiative and women-related HVB activities such as the HVB Women’s Council and the HVB mentoring programme for female start-up entrepreneurs.
A first keynote was held by Jennifer Fizia, Co-Founder at Lendstar, on why banking is social.
Besides, Jennifer Fizia was able to share her experiences from participating in the German venture capital TV with Lendstar. The next contributor of a keynote was Manuela Rabener, Co-Founder & CMO at Scalable Capital, who presented the results of a study on women’s investment behavior that was conducted by Yougov on the behalf of Scalable Capital. Once again, we were able to bring together women of the financial industry and we are happy to see that various connections started to emerge between Munich’s and Berlin’s leading women in Fintech and banking.
The next events are already in sight: On occasion of the NOAH conference, the FinTech Ladies Europe will meet for breakfast at Morrison & Foerster in Berlin on June 23rd. In addition, a Fintech Ladies Europe Lunch will be held at Handelsblatt’s Banken im Umbruch conference in September.
