Initiated by FinTech thought leaders and entrepreneurs, Susanne Chishti and Janos Barberis, with their mutual passion for FinTech, they believed that no one author, organization or region in the world was able to exhaustively cover all the facets and nuances of FinTech. They reached out to the global FinTech community and selected contributions from a range of individuals and organizations, from entrepreneurs working for FinTech start-ups, to service providers, SMEs and employees of large organizations.
