Building your own fintech ecosystem


After years of developing our fintech ecosystem, FINTECH Circle is now helping organizations to strengthen their own.

Your ecosystem network is only as effective as your knowledge of the main players within your market. In order to maximise the key components of your company, such as R&D, talent acquisition and sales and marketing, and position yourself with precision, a thorough evaluation of competitors and partners is essential.

Sometimes even niche  sectors comprise of dozens of categories made up of hundreds of companies and stakeholders. Mapping  the network through to suppliers and customers increases your ecosystem exponentially.

Innovative strategies require ecosystem builders. FINTECH Circle supports your business units to build platform models and strengthen your innovation muscle.

Michael Brooke, Head of Innovation, BNP Paribas, explains. “We were delighted to work in partnership with FINTECH Circle for the BNP International Hackathon. This was a complex challenge which drew deeply upon their extensive ecosystem and expertise. The requirement was not only to assess and select multiple entrepreneurs across two intricate and multi-faceted customer journeys, but also to ensure a positive experience for our attendees and fintech participants.”
