Workshops, Pitching Battles And Networking
The Etihad Challenge
Following the success of 2018’s Innovation Adoption Challenge which resulted in the commercialisation of a miles redemption solution with payments technology startup Modo, Etihad partnered with FinTech Abu Dhabi again.
For 2019, they looked for startups who could provide game-changing solutions relevant to problems statements.
The Etihad Challenge culminated on the final day of FinTech Abu Dhabi. Selected startups pitched their solution, and demonstrated how it could answer Etihad's problem statements below, to a theatre of Etihad executives. The winners will now work with Etihad to explore the opportunity to deploy their solution.
This was an incredible chance for emerging and scaling FinTech startups to pitch, test and possibly deploy their game-changing solution to one of the world's leading airlines and most iconic brands.
Tokenisation Of Assets Workshop
FinTech Abu Dhabi's Bronze Sponsor, DLA Piper organised the 'Tokenisation of Assets - creating value and liquidity with distributed ledger solutions' Workshop. This Workshop answered your questions surrounding Asset Tokenisation and the opportunities these provide.
Tokenisation presents a significant opportunity to find and create new markets and generate value from assets that might otherwise be illiquid. It also presents the potential for a more capital efficient and fair financial world. This session focused on identifying these opportunities and providing practical guidance on how to pursue them.
