From the Judge’s corner

Diversity of thought brings a new perspective to problem solving and to creating innovative technology solutions which solve complex business problems. As women, our life experiences drive our unique problem solving and collaboration methods, which can lead to different ways of thinking and innovative outcomes.

Carol Houle

Gender diversity is much-needed in the FinTech sector. Not only are women severely under-represented, but there is also plenty of evidence that greater gender diversity results in more successful new ideas, products and services. The Female FinTech competition is a fantastic opportunity to showcase technology talent, it is also a way for Deutsche Bank to engage and support a community of female founders

Details on the Atos FinTech Community

At Atos we favor FinTech that fit with our go-to-market strategy and industry solutions. This is largely so that we can assign an owner on our side to help mentor and support our FinTech, that they can be readily incorporated into our end-to-end client solutions and thus ensure that the FinTech is presented to the maximum number of our clients. The focus areas for us are:

  • Customer experience (e.g. digital assistant, digital banking, mobile payments, and wallet)
  • Business reinvention (e.g. loan utility, IoT, blockchain, instant payments)
  • Operational excellence (e.g. digital workplace, cloudification)
  • Trust & compliance (e.g. cybersecurity, trusted authentication, e-identify)

The benefits of the Atos FinTech community are significant for both parties – for you, gaining access to our clients is enormous. We serve 13 of the largest 20 banks globally and 15 of the largest 30 insurance organizations.

But we also help FinTechs develop their offerings further by introducing them to our Atos Financial Services Sandbox. Here we combine solutions between Atos and FinTech, test, create a demo, and work on the go-to-market to then take the solution to our clients. We have 16000 banking experts and 5000 insurance experts at Atos – all of which can help you accelerate your start-up!
