The Chamber of Commerce of Metropolitan Montreal

Fintech companies: A unique opportunity to make business connections in Europe

After two highly successful trade missions in 2018 and 2019, the Chamber invites technology companies to participate in its third trade mission to the Paris Fintech Forum. This mission, carried out in collaboration with Desjardins, will be held from January 27 to February 1, 2020. Participating companies will also have the chance to explore the fintech sector in Luxembourg.

The Paris FinTech Forum:

The Paris Fintech Forum will be in its fifth edition this year. It is recognized as the leading international digital finance event. More than 2600 participants are expected to attend this forum, which will take place on January 28 and 29, 2020. It will bring together more than 250 speakers, including executives from banking institutions, insurance companies and more than 160 international fintech companies. It is an opportunity to discuss and network with the main international players in the finance and fintech industry.

“The mission allowed us to meet the largest French banks, as well as attend presentations, and thus strengthen our links with their innovation departments. Plus, during the exhibition, we were able to develop our network with high-level contacts. For us, the mission was a real success with most banks, which showed a very strong interest in our company.” – Charles Nouÿrit, founder and CEO of SmartPay.me and participant in the 2019 mission

Luxembourg: the leading financial centre in the euro zone

In addition to the two days at the Paris Fintech Forum, participants in the 2020 edition of the Chamber’s trade mission will have the opportunity to explore the fintech sector in Luxembourg, where they will meet local financial institutions, incubators, accelerators and major players in fintech.

Luxembourg is the gateway to the European Union (EU) for international fintech companies. This country, located in the heart of the Grande Région, is the European hubfor a considerable number of fintech companies, including major players in the online payment and e-commerce service sector, such as PayPal, Amazon and Rakuten.

"Canada and Luxembourg have a lot in common: we have shared values, live in tolerant, open and in multicultural and multilingual societies, and have common ground with regard to our aims and ambitions in the sphere of finance. We are excited about the opportunities Luxembourg-Canada relations can bring, with our markets acting as entry points to the EU and North America respectively. Let's build on our common values, shared ideas, and talent pools. Luxembourg and Canada can be strong partners in the financial sector, especially during such turbulent macro-economic times.” - Robert Jarvis, Head of North American Desk, Luxembourg for Finance
