Since the official establishment of Indonesia FinTech Association (AFTECH) in the early 2016, we have seen that the fintech industry in Indonesia is growing very rapidly. Currently, AFTECH has more than 270 members that include: fintech startups, financial institutions and technology companies. More than 240 of AFTECH members are fintech startups with wide ranging business models, including: payments, digital lending, wealth management, equity crowdfunding, market provisioning and insuretech. This is an exciting time to be in the fintech scene!
With a vision to encourage financial inclusion through digital financial services and a mission to support financial targets through increasing access, usage and quality of financial services, AFTECH plays an active role in advocating policies and encouraging the professional development of its members. Alongside its members, AFTECH conducts routine events that promote the development of fintech in Indonesia to various stakeholders and help raise public understanding towards fintech products and services.
Our flagship event last year, the FinTech Fair 2018 held at Taman Anggrek Mall, was a successful one. We want to continue that success again this year. But this time we want it to be bigger and more impactful. Indonesia FinTech Festival 2019 will be divided into two main parts. The exhibition will be designed to showcase our members to fintech enthusiasts and the general public. Meanwhile the convention will bring some of the best speakers in the fintech sector to give new perspectives and best practices to all fintech players.
We are very happy to announce that we have received commitment of support from various stakeholders, such as regulators, industry players, financial institutions and international agencies.
And we are also inviting all of you to be part of this event and together let’s build a stronger fintech industry for the better Indonesia and the world.
