The Townhall: CEE’s tech conference

ONLINE

CONFERENCE

What is the Townhall?

The Townhall is a digital tech conference that brings together some of Europe’s leading sectoral companies to discuss technology’s role in shaping our world. The first edition of the event will focus on the sectors of fintech and e-health. 

This edition of the online event consists of four panels covering B2C, B2B, and e-health companies, while in the last segment, VCs will offer their two cents on what makes a pitch deck stand out. 

The Townhall is a free-access event co-organised by the UK’s Department for International Trade and Patterns Technology - a tech business consultancy.

Agenda

9:30 - 10:40 CET

The Future of Fintech: Empowering the Customer

In this panel, we have brought together some of the most exciting fintech companies in Europe whose mission is to ease end-customers’ lives. With an explicit B2C focus, this Townhall team will shed light on the current status of the fintech sector in Europe, while eyeing the future.

Fintech’s backend: Infrastructure that matters

In the fragmented CEE region, it is infrastructure that tells us where one market ends and another begins. Changing consumer behaviour in years past has given rise to the upsurge of critical services for the fintech world: digital identity, RPA, or even hedging for both SMEs and large enterprises. All of these services foster exponential growth for local companies that want to benefit from world-class business products. This panel has a strong B2B focus, and will offer a behind-the-scenes take on fintech.

Healthcare, meet Covid: the upsurge of e-health

Covid may as well be the biggest digitisation driver for most traditional players. Some tech companies, however, took on the challenge of curbing the negative impact of the virus for patients and businesses alike. In the e-health panel, this Townhall team will showcase the overarching importance of technology and R&D for sectors beyond financial services.

Ideas that make the cut: VC talks

We have all had good ideas. Very few of those, however, have been VC validated. This Townhall team will talk about risk and the benefits of it. We have invited three reputable guests who will share in-depth insights about their invaluable experience investing in start-ups from Central and Eastern Europe.
