Strong stories from Women in Fintech
ARYZE hosted Women in Fintech where the keen audience heard some very interesting and inspiring stories from four strong women in the business.
Despite the Danish weather suddenly taking a turn for the worse an enthusiastic crowd of more than 30 women and one male showed up for Women in Fintech.
After the presentations there was a Q&A with the audience that contained some very strong profiles. The evening ended with break out sessions where the participants really got to network and talk, and all through the evening there was a great energy in the room.
It was almost as the event ended too early so ARYZE will definitely arrange another event with focus on women.
