Breakfast Buzz: Making FinTech & Corporate Partnerships Work

Making FinTech & Corporate Partnerships Work

Breakfast Buzz, hosted by DIFC FinTech Hive, creates a monthly forum that stimulates and encourages discussions on the latest FinTech trends and developments. If you want to be kept well-informed, enlightened and up-to-speed on what’s new in the world of financial technology, join us in hearing insights from industry leaders and share your views with members from our ecosystem.
The fourteenth edition of Breakfast Buzz, brought to you in partnership with Standard Chartered Bank, will focus on how FinTechs and corporations can make partnerships work to deliver innovate solutions for clients.

The session will be delivered by Mr. Alex Manson, Global Head of Standard Chartered Ventures. Join us at the event to learn more about:
  • How do FinTechs overcome difficulties in working with big corporates, and what’s in it for both parties?
  • What are some teething problems that need to be overcome?
  • What are corporates looking for in a FinTech partner?


At Standard Chartered Bank, Alex Manson heads a new business unit established in March 2018 to lead innovation and promote intrapreneurship across the Group, runs a professional investment unit to invest in FinTech companies and promotes the testing and implementation of new business models with new disruptive ventures wholly or partially owned by the Group.
