On February 11th, 2020, for the first time, finleap connect hosted a Product Management Meetup with speakers from Omio and Daimler AG on building state-of-the-art digital products in fintech and beyond. Our Principal Product Manager, Stefan Schüssler, shared how we build products at finleap connect.
The whole finleap ecosystem got together and celebrated the successes of 2019 at the annual finleap Christmas party. This year, finleap traveled back in time to a colorful era. The motto of this year’s party: Ugly ’90s! As a tradition, all fins (finleap employees) and team members of the ecosystem took the dress code of the party seriously. The costumes included neon colors, oversized t-shirts, tattoo bracelets, and the Spice Girls. Let’s recap the finleap party of the year!
From our experience in the fintech market, most insurance companies do not seem to be fully aware of their potential in Open Banking. Most of them are still not using the opportunities coming from accessing customer bank statements to their fullest extent. Therefore, we think there is plenty of space to develop innovative solutions in the insurance market, all driven by PSD2 and Open Banking. finleap connect is able to fulfill the insurance market needs with 3 distinctive offerings.
PSD2 und Open Banking schaffen ein enormes Potenzial für innovative Lösungen im Versicherungsmarkt. Auf Grundlage der Nutzung von Bank- und Transaktionsdaten können individualisierte, digitale Versicherungsprodukte entwickelt werden. Dieses Potenzial schöpfen bislang die wenigsten Versicherungen voll aus. Hier kommen finleap connects Lösungen, speziell zugeschnitten auf die Bedürfnisse der Versicherungen, ins Spiel.
finleap connect was founded in September 2019. And since the new finleap connect team consists of more than 170 ‘connectors’, spread over five offices across Europe, an offsite was organized to allow everyone to get to know each other and to unite as one new company. Hamburg, the beautiful city in Northern Germany was chosen as the location for the big get-together.
Bankathon #7 in Prague was the largest and most international Bankathon so far, with 27 competing teams consisting of 93 developers, from 7 countries. During the 30 hours of coding, they worked with 6 APIs on 6 different theme tracks and 21.000€ prize money was awarded after the Final Pitches – enabled by 16 Bankathon partners.
Going forward, finleap streamlines its efforts to fully digitalize the finance industry by adding the new business unit finleap connect. finleap connect unites finleap’s expertise and products as well as talent from its international markets team, the fintech platforms finreach solutions, infinitec solutions, and the banking service provider figo.
