Norvik Banka has become the official bank of Digital Freedom Festival to jointly raise the awareness of the development of financial technologies and innovations in the region by arranging a series of discussions on FinTech-related issues. As early as September and October, there will be discussions about the future of money as means of settlements, as well as money and cyber security.

During the Digital Freedom Festival on November 27-28, a number of high-level discussions about FinTech are to be held in Norvik Banka’s Investors Lounge. Among the main topics of this year’s Digital Freedom Festival will be smart cities and cyber security, artificial intelligence, green technologies, FinTech and digital detox. During the festival, representatives of corporations will have the opportunity to meet startup entrepreneurs and find ways to make the corporations’ services and products more innovative and attractive to clients. There will also be discussions with policymakers about measures to support the development of innovations.

Chairman of the Board of Norvik Banka Oliver Bramwell: “Norvik Banka keeps purposefully implementing the strategy: in the segment of financial services the bank develops digital innovations by introducing them actively in the bank’s services to satisfy the clients’ needs and take leading positions in the field. Cooperation with the Digital Freedom Festival is the best way to raise the awareness in society about the developments in the field of FinTech around the globe and to keep up with the global trends.”

Co-Founder & CEO of Digital Freedom Festival Dagnija Lejiņa: “We are genuinely pleased that Norvik Banka has become the official bank of the festival for the second consecutive year. We want cooperation between the corporations and startup companies to create a new momentum and energy for the development of innovations. In the European Innovation Scoreboard, Latvia is at the bottom of the list; however, it is amongst the countries characterized by the fastest growth of innovative activities, thus Latvia and the Baltics have the potential to become a region with a significant breakthrough in introducing the modern technologies. Together with strong partners, our festival becomes an increasingly powerful platform for inspiration, education and getting new business contacts – businessmen must be extremely well-informed about the developments in the world of technologies to invest their knowledge in the development of the Latvian economy with double efficiency.”
