NXTP Labs’ Fin-tech 2018 Regional Acceleration Program, where Alibre.io formed part of for over 4 months, concluded past week with the Fin-Tech Conference 2018 in Mexico City, whose theme this year was “Beyond Blockchain”.

[Nov 15th 2018] The meeting brought together banking and financial industry leaders, entrepreneurs, investors and Fin-Tech innovators in a day with keynotes, discussion panels, regional Pitch Competition and more than 25 speakers from around the world. This year the main focus was the impact of Blockchain technology for the future, experiences and success stories of ICOs in Latin America, integrations and business cases.

Some of the speakers of these year included Thayde Olarte (Scotiabank), Sebastián Serrano (Ripio) Agustín Aramburu (Kayum) Henry Sraigman (RSK), Marta Cruz (NXTP Labs), Ariel Arrieta (NXTP Labs), Viviana Garza Salazar (Banxico), Alfonso Monroy (Bitso) Eduardo Guraieb (Fintech México).

“We are already working actively with banks like Scotiabank who has internal integration with startups, and we want to promote this type of process in other companies in the industry by showing the value that the Fintechs we work with can bring them” Ciro Echesortu, Regional Program Director for NXTP Labs.

Another highlight of the conference was NXTP Labs’ Regional Pitch Competition where the best Fin-Tech startups from Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Uruguay and Mexico, that are part of the NXTP Labs Regional Acceleration Program, presented their companies in front of a jury of investors and corporations and competed for the first place.
