The FTSFEST is back – as the curtain opens on a year full of expectations of recovery and renovation, we at FTS are eager to mark the start of a second fintech revolution by bringing on stage the most powerful advocates – those who’ve been trailblazers and grasp what true impact means. Starting with a focus on sustainability, financial inclusion, and impact investing, topics that today must be considered transversely, we’ll explore trends that are already shaking up the industry, such as embedded and decentralized finance spotting.

The afternoon session powered by Accenture will showcase the vibrant scene of the fintech revolution, by discussing impacting investing, cloud infrastructure and sustainable finance through the voices of industry leaders such as Kosta Peric, Ameya Upadhyay, Carlo Piana, Andrea Isola, and Sam Maule.

Day 2 is brought to you by Deloitte, which will be focused on Fintech trends as embedded finance, decentralized finance and cloud infrastructure with testimonials of Irina Chuchkina (Thunes), Francesco Rinaudo (Google), Stani Kulechov (Aave), Daniel Marovitz (, and many others.
