This year, BBVA also wants to take the occasion to share its collaboration experience with the fintech innovation ecosystem through its different startup support, acquisition and incubation initiatives.
Indeed, some of the startups spawning from the BBVA's New Digital Business (NDB) area, such as Denizen and Tuyyo, will be present at the event, along with others, like Holvi or Madiva, which BBVA acquired in recent years. One of these encounters will take place during the 'Wake up with CEOs' session, where Denizen CEO and founder Joaquín Ayuso, star fintech analyst Chris Skinner and Antti-Jussi Suominen, CEO of Holvi, the Finnish neobank that BBVA bought in 2016, will debate, argue and predict where we're headed and share what they and their organizations are doing to shape the future. The session will be held at the Atrium stage, sponsored by BBVA.
Many other startups that have taken part in BBVA Open Talent, the world's biggest fintech competition, now in its tenth year, will also go on stage at Money 20/20 to share their stories. This is the case of startup PayKey, winner of the contest's 2016 edition; or Spain's Check it and Britain's Spin Analytics, finalists in past editions of the competition and which are currently developing or have developed proofs of concept with BBVA.
Also, in testimony of its commitment to support emerging businesses, BBVA will be acting as startup sponsor at Money20/20 Europe, and has announced that it is pushing back the registration deadline of its Open Talent competition by two weeks to give the hugely talented firms that will gather at the event the chance to sign up and take part in it.
