We work to secure good industry conditions for Norwegian fintech's
WHO WE ARE
Fintech Norway is an ideal organisation working to improve
industry conditions for all the independent fintech
companies in Norway. Compared to other countries, Norway
is still in the starting pit when it comes to fintech, and we
still have much to learn. Fintech Norway is an initiative
looking to facilitate for cooperation and networking in a way
that our members can find solutions together.
The organization was founded in 2020 and began as an
initiative to accelerate the banks' work with PSD2 and open
banking - but Fintech Norway’s ambition is to become much
more than just a "PSD2 organization".
We are an organization where our members set the agenda
– we are created by and for our members.
WHAT WE DO
The main purpose of Fintech Norway is to ensure good
industry conditions for fintech's in Norway.
With this, we want to give everyone an equal field to
play on with a fair and impartial judge. This is where
it all starts and enables fintech's to compete on
innovation and value propositions.
Our vision is that Fintech Norway will be a challenger
against the established and constitute a voice in the
public debate for our members. Together we will fight
the battles that are difficult to fight alone, solve
challenges and push boundaries. Overall, our voices
are getting louder!
HOW WE DO IT?
HOW WE DO IT:
To ensure favorable industry conditions and
development, we have regular meetings and a good
dialogue with Finanstilsynet, the Norwegian
Competition Authority, banks, and other relevant
Fintech Norway has a voice that is heard in the fintech
ecosystem and is already an organization that
authorities and decision-makers turn to for advice
regarding the needs of the industry.
We connect links to other interest groups in Europe
and closer to Brussel.
Most importantly - we are a network for our members.
Active members will enjoy the greatest benefits of
their membership as Fintech Norway facilitates
discussions, exchange of experience, and knowledge
sharing within several topics such as PSD2, KYC, AML,
and Authentication. In addition, we arrange our own
events for knowledge sharing and network building.
Fintech Norway has:
• Tentacles out in the right places.
