- 07.06.2022 05:15 pm
After an exciting start to the day that saw Money20/20’s attendees stride across the stage to enter the show, Scarlett Sieber and Tracey Davies took to the Big Picture Stage to welcome all and outline what they had in store during an action-packed day at this week’s show.
Money20/20 started the day by welcoming Charlotte Hogg, CEO of Visa Europe and Daniel Kjellen, CEO & Co-Founder of Tink, on the Big Picture stage for their first-ever live joint interview. After Visa acquired the European open banking platform in March this year, we all had several questions. Charlotte and Daniel took a deep-dive into the motivation behind the acquisition and what’s next for the two giants of their fields now that they’re working together.
Anne Boden, Founder and CEO of Starling Bank, explained how the startup’s strategy is helping it thrive where its peers are struggling, and Stripe then took to the stage, with John Collison, Co-Founder and President, the fintech giant with a $95 billion valuation, discussing their plans for further expansion and how to stay competitive in the global economy.
In a session hosted by Nuno Sebastiao, CEO of Feedzai, titled ‘Faster, Higher and Into Orbit’, racing driver Susie Wolff, rock climber Alain Robert, and British astronaut Tim Peake, reflected on their achievements, shared their unique perspectives and discussed how these can enrich people’s daily lives and industry collaborations. It was a lively and motivating discussion about understanding and managing risk and how to believe in yourself and dare to be different.
At The Evolution Stage, companies announced for the first time big and exciting news to the audience. MFS Africa acquired US-based Global Technology Partners (GTP) for $34 million and Metal Pay is launching in Europe.
See below a few more announcements that grabbed everyone’s attention:
- Revolut partners with Tink for European payments
