Swiss FinTech Investor Day – November 30th, 2020 – SIX Convention Point
We live in an era of digitalization. Internet and communication technologies are evolving with lightning speed and with that, they make a huge influence on all of the other industries.
FinTech field is a great example.
FinTech (Financial Technology) is a field that explores the use of emerging digital technologies in order to improve financial services.
Its goal is to leverage technological advances to enhance financial services and introduce new ideas to the area of financial operations.
Some successful examples from this field are crowdfunding platforms, like Kickstarter and Patreon, cryptocurrency, and e-currency, using smartphones for mobile banking or managing insurance.
The FinTech consists of both startups and established financial institutions and technology companies.
Swiss Fintech Investor day is the largest FinTech investor event in Switzerland, with over 250 attendees coming from all over the world
It is an event designed for angel investors, corporate ventures, family offices, venture capitalists, tech fund managers, and other startup supporters that want to invest in fintech startups.
Also, it is a friendly place where enthusiastic angel investors can learn new things. It has a great funding success rate, which makes it a perfect place for startups to present their ideas.
Big success funding rates also could be an indicator of potential value that startups presented at this conference have.
If you are a business angel, an investor, or a corporate searching for new connections – Swiss FinTech innovators will be waiting for you.
Swiss IT Lawyers’ Day – August 25th, 2020 – Niederer Kraft & Frey AG
We can see how technology is influencing financial services and operations and adapting them to our needs. But we also need to adapt ourselves to innovations too.
We are not talking about technological products such as smartphones, that are changing the world in obvious ways.
We are talking about the whole culture that is evolving around those innovations. The change is not escaping traditionally rigorous law practitioners too.
Swiss IT lawyers’ day will be held in August to explore, among others, one pretty serious subject.
This subject is legal frameworks and consequences that are appearing due to the Internet and communication technologies expansion.
DIGITALIZATION AND LAW will bi its thematic framework.
Some other subjects that are going to be explored are GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) reinforced in Europe, the protection of our voice data, legal risks, and opportunities of quantum computing and artificial intelligence.
This is one of the conferences that aims to highlight the subject of how IT culture could start to influence law practitioners especially AGILE project management.
This term AGILE is coming directly from software development. It is an umbrella term for different practices that are based on the collaboration of self-organizing and cross-functional teams with their customers and clients.
The main characteristic of this collaboration is its flexibility. The goal is to create an early product and continually develop and enhance it.
It makes a lot of sense in software development, but how could it be applied in law practicing? Swiss IT layer’s day conference is trying to answer this question.
New Energy Investor Summit, August 24th and 25th 2020 – Swiss Re Centre for Global Dialogue
Alternate energy is becoming more and more important, and we need to know more about renewable resources.
Oil reserves are getting lower. Global warming and climate change are becoming obvious, although professionals claim that it is only the beginning.

This summit is designed so that the top managers meet and evaluate the most important markets in Europe and offer direct and indirect investment opportunities in the EU and Switzerland.
Speakers will present their companies and projects and offer an exchange of best practice solutions.
Some of the subjects of this year’s summit will be:
- Portugal as renewable energy hotspot
- Wind and solar investment trends
- Hydrogen – the game-changer for renewable energies
If you are an investor or renewable energy problem solver, this summit is for you!
International Conference on Medical and Health Sciences, October 16th and 17th 2020 – Hotel Allegra
International Conference on Medical & Health Science will be held in Zurich, Switzerland this year. Each year it provides an excellent international platform for presenting research results and valuable experience in Medical and Health Science.
The conference is set for scientists and practitioners both from academia and industry to gather and share gained knowledge and best practices.
We expect it to the most interesting out of all conferences because Coronavirus surely is the most important topic this year. It did bring “the new normal” to our lives, but it also called for fast advances in medicine and cooperative sciences, methodologies, and technologies.
Europe Mining Investment, 11th and 12th October – Park Hyatt Zurich
Swiss Mining Institute organizes conferences twice a year.
European Mining Investment gathers experts within the Resources Sector. They provide top quality perspectives of the industry.
Over 40 mining companies will attend to present their work, research, and findings at this conference.
