FTF on Tour | FinTech meets Travel – in Tweets

A $8tn sector – and the opportunity for FinTech. This was the theme of our inaugural event that brought together 16 promising startups at the intersection of Travel and FinTech with leading corporates and investors in this space. Couldn’t make it? Below is the event in tweets!

Among the selected startups were firms employing blockchain technology to help “rescue” the nearly $50bn worth of loyalty points and miles that expire yearly; creating  revolutionary mobile- and web-based solutions to “kill the monthly expense report”; and marrying IoT / RFID tech and analytics to deliver the right offer, right time to the right customer at the right place (e.g. a store, an airport lounge etc.)
