Frank Schwab - Professional Board Member, Strategic Advisor & Speaker

As former CEO of Fidor TecS AG I helped to implement Fidor Bank's technology strategy. Fidor TecS enables disruptive digital banking by reshaping the customer relationship through technology. The core product is the banking platform fidorOS that seamlessly bridges traditional banking (account, payment, deposit, loan) and new banking (P2P, Crowd, Crypto, Realtime). fidorOS is the first open API banking platform of its kind and multiple award winning.

In 2013 Samarth Shekhar and me founded FinTech Forum - the first German FinTech event focused on Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and Central Europe with the mission to identify innovators and disruptors in the Financial Services sector and bring them together with high-calibre investors.
