MAS’ Singapore Fintech Festival Makes Its Return in 2022 as a Physical Eventby Fintech News Singapore August 10, 2022
The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) has announced the return of the Singapore Fintech Festival (SFF) as an in-person event to be held from 2 to 4 November 2022 at the Singapore EXPO.
SFF 2022 is organised by MAS and Elevandi, in partnership with Constellar, a global player in the meetings, incentives, conventions and exhibitions industry, and in collaboration with The Association of Banks in Singapore.
Eelvandi is a Company Limited by Guarantee (GLC) created by MAS to manage the SFF and lead a series of new initiatives to provide year-round engagement with the global fintech community.
The theme of SFF 2022 will be ‘Building Resilient Business Models amid Volatility and Change’. With the global economy experiencing a surge in inflation and facing risks of a significant slowdown in growth, many fintech firms are striving to stay resilient and viable.
The SFF will feature industry events and the annual Innovation Lab Crawl being held on 31 October and 1 November.
SFF 2022 will also see the return of a physical exhibition featuring over 500 leading organisations, including fintech firms, financial institutions, technology firms, and policymakers, showcasing their latest innovations and developments in the space.
The exhibition will include free-to-access Ecosystem Stages for attendees to get up close with the newest technologies, products and launches from industry players.
The Ecosystem Stages will feature product announcements and product showcases from exhibitors; a specially curated ESG Impact Zone; country and sector deep-dives in the World Fintech Festival; and finalists’ showcases from the MAS Global Fintech Hackcelerator and Polyfintech100 API Hackathon.
Debuting at SFF is the Elevandi Global Founders Network, an exclusive global influencer programme that identifies exceptional founders, on an annual basis, who are building sustainable and resilient businesses, with a positive impact in the world.
The global founders will be chosen through a nomination process, honoured at the SFF and share their 10-minute insights at the Founders Peak.
Participants can also look forward to the winners’ showcase at the SFF Global Fintech Awards and curated networking sessions including an Investors Summit powered by Elevandi Connects.
Sopnendu Mohanty, Chief Fintech Officer at MAS and Chairman of Elevandi Board said,
“As the leading global knowledge platform for fintech, SFF 2022 will focus on bringing best-in-class experts to share industry insights to build business models that remain viable and resilient amid the crisis.
The format this year has been enhanced to add numerous intimate and interactive sessions, to foster deeper discussion between the public and private sector stakeholders.”
