Prominent Regional and Global Organizations Set to Join the Inaugural Enterprise Excellerate

E2 will focus on three themes: FinTech, Digital Banking and Start Ups. On this regard, the event will gather over 200 delegates from the technology, finance, entrepreneurial, and banking space to spur discussions on how the Middle East can keep up with the global trends and thus create new digital and tech startups in Bahrain whilst attracting investments for the development of the economy. Leading organizations will be joining this exciting forum to engage in the informative sessions and contribute to the growing entrepreneurial ecosystem.

Amongst the organizations joining E2 is the Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM) - a broad-based international financial center for local, regional and international institutions that support member institutions with the regulatory framework, legal jurisdiction and attractive business environment for sustainable business growth. The Executive Director of Capital Markets at ADGM, Mr. Wai Lum Kwok will be joining the conference and will speak to the effect of highlighting the GCC as a greater influential hub for global commerce.

In addition to this, Innovate Finance - an association representing UK’s global FinTech community - will join in as an Associate Partner to the conference. Innovate Finance will contribute to the conference through a riveting speech by their CEO, Lawrence Wintermeyer on the trajectory of the FinTech industry within a global standpoint.

E2 will feature discussions on topics relevant to the current market scenario including sessions related to the FinTech Revolution, Digital Banking, the Rise of Robo-advisors, Blockchain and Crypto-currencies and much more.
