  • About FINNOSUMMIT Mexico 2019

    The leading conference for innovation on financial services and the one with the greatest Fintech track in the Latin América region, FINNOSUMMIT, will be back stronger than ever in 2019. From September the 10th to 13th, to connect the Fintech and Insurtech ecosystem in order to foster the region’s industry transformation through collaboration.


    FINNOSUMMIT has positioned itself as the greatest collaboration platform of the sector in the region where acknowledged entrepreneurs, financial services’ innovators, financial entities executives and the most influential international investors meet to take risks and share information together. The event offers an ideal environment for networking, through which the audience reaches innovation rates that will turn them into the winners of the inclusive digital finance and insurance for the next 20 years.


    Throughout FINNOSUMMIT’s history, we have seen the industry mature to an extent that it requires new targeted collaboration models.
