Hi there, my name is Clas Beese and, in my capacity as Fintech Guide, I’m here to welcome and guide you through the digital finance sector in this historic port city. I’m the manager of Fintech Hamburg, an initiative which aims to strengthen ties between established and digital financial; in so doing, we hope to make Hamburg even more competitive and more attractive as a finance location. This is something I personally feel very strongly about: I have been working closely with Hamburg Fintechs for years now, but note that the city is lacking a community in which participants can share their experiences and learn from each other. Fintech Hamburg is run by a not-for-profit organisation called Finanzplatz Hamburg e.V. which brings together 120 established companies in the city’s finance industry.
So what precisely does being a “Fintech Guide” mean? First and foremost, it means being the person you talk to if you have questions about Fintech Hamburg as an organisation or would like to get involved. Beyond that, I bring entrepreneurs and companies from the digital finance industry and established financials together. In my view, this is the single most important contribution we can make to creating the kind of community we need. I also offer Fintech start-ups ideas about how to take their operations to the next stage, drawing on my own experience of setting up a Fintech and various other projects; you’ll find more information about what I’m currently involved in below, as well as my contact details. I’m looking forward to hearing from you and finding out more about what you do.
As Hamburg’s Fintech Guide, I am the first port of call for both Fintech start-ups and established financials looking to engage with one another. I’m excited about what we can all achieve together.Clas Beese
I was one of the people who set up Finletter, an impartial newsletter offering quality reporting on the latest Fintech news from Germany and abroad every Friday morning.
As the driving force behind Fintech week, a week-long set of talks, workshops, discussions, and networking events about digital finance technology, I organise the line-up and am the person to contact for all enquiries relating to it.
In my role as a speaker and training session leader, I offer deep dives into innovation and the digital transformation. I provide keynote speeches, workshops, and innovation packages, with a focus on supporting banks as they move into the digital future.
Do you want me to help you and your company find your way through Fintech, put you in contact with someone, or simply find out more about what I do? Then I’m looking forward to hearing from you.
