    While many companies face an existential threat from the COVID-19 crisis, some sectors are poised to thrive during the economic downturn and also in a future heavily reliant on digital solutions.

    Fintech plays a critical role as the coronavirus pandemic limits the face-to-face interaction. Fintech companies will now have to step up their efforts in facilitating access to financial services, and drive the change in which businesses interact with one another. However, not all fintech companies possess advantages in the post-crisis market.

    In this webinar, hosted by TechNode Global and part of the Tech Insights series, speakers representing the likes of YouTrip, Pfizer, and Alibaba Cloud will shine a light on the opportunities, pitfalls, and latest innovations from across the finance ecosystem which are moving forward in unprecedented times.
