Event description


The PensionTech project aims to connect all the players within the pension sector (startups, corporate, innovators and policymakers), in order to facilitate the innovation process and collaboration among all the stakeholders. Initiated in 2017 by Holland FinTech, the project is now in its second edition.

Last year started with the PensionTech Expert Meeting in March, followed by the PensionTech Summit in June and the PensionTech Track at Fintech Vortex in September.

After the success of last year and the increased attention towards the topic, Holland FinTech decided to continue the project, kicking off the new year with PensionTech 2018. In May 2018 we will gather all the key stakeholders and interested parties to join the second edition of our PensionTech Summit aiming at 300+ attendees, this time with a whole day event, preceded by a pre-event.
