BNP Paribas, platinum partner of the Paris Fintech Forum

Digital transformation is at the centre of our Group’s business development plan, and for this, we largely collaborate with Fintechs. Our teams in all business lines are co-building innovative services and products with Fintechs to improve the customer experience and develop our work methods. We also have several acceleration programmes under way to support Fintechs in their development by letting them work with our business lines. 

For many Fintechs, we are the bank that backs them in their development in France and abroad. A last pillar of our relationship with Fintechs and start-ups in general, is our role as investor. We coordinate several investment funds that specialise in equity investments in start-ups.

This global implication led us to be a Platinum partner again for the event. We shall be present throughout the 2 days with:  

  1. A 10m² stand in the exhibition hall where we can talk with participants and visitors   
  2. A 100m² lounge area where you'll see pitch sessions on specific topics and meet Fintechs
  3. The interventions of various spokespeople of the Group
