Dear friend, 

This May, we took a short trip to Tallinn, Estonia where we revealed the beautiful and ugly truth behind FinTech and financial services collaboration in course of an insightful panel at the Latitude 59 conference. These revelations are also the topic of our most recent report "Open Innovation: Fact or Fiction?", which covers insights from 65% of the European top 20 banks.

In this perspective, you can not only find our full report but also short, hands-on guidelines on how to generate greater gain from collaboration with startups and corporates. In addition, we introduce you to our newest portfolio startup, EyeOnID, which solves the increasing pain of identity theft.

Enjoy the read and as always: Your feedback is appreciated!

P.S.: If you can't wait for our next perspective to arrive, follow us on LinkedIn
