About Us

  • Finnovista

    Finnovista is an impact organization

    ... that accelerates the development of technological companies who provide digital financial services while simultaneously boosting the fintech ecosystem in which these companies operate

    ... Finovista focuses on the fintech opportunity in emerging markets where an important gap existes between access to financial services and to digital technologies

    ... by involving a “smart collaborative network” that includes entrepreneurship ecosystems, investors and the financial industry of developed and emerging economies.

    In Finnovista, we believe that this gap can become smaller with the creation of tech startups, that can provide financial digital services to large segments of the population in a profitable and effective way, with new and more innovative business models adapted to the realities of those markets.
