A SPACE Launches _PASSPORT to FinTech

MANILA – A SPACE Philippines launches its first Program, _PASSPORT to Fintech. This is for any individual or startup currently building or looking to create innovative products in the financial services vertical to take _PASSPORT to FinTech

Financial Technology (FinTech) companies are generally startups aiming to disrupt traditional financial systems and corporations that rely less on software. FinTech has taken the world by storm and revolutionized the way we bank. 

John Bailon, the co-founder and CEO of Satoshi Citadel Industries, shares, These are exciting times for the Philippines as we leapfrog over outdated systems and embrace new and better financial technologies such as digital currencies and electronic wallets in solving the age old problem of financial inclusion. The stars are aligned for financial technology disruption in the country, with geographical limitations, economic growth trajectory and social characteristics all lining up to fuel it.”

Aspiring entrepreneurs and startups hoping to ride the wave are invited to take _PASSPORT to FinTech. The _PASSPORT Program will take a passionate, entrepreneurial mind on a journey towards innovation success. Aspiring entrepreneurs, teams, and businesses are invited to undertake “trips”. Each trip takes up to three months, and each trip gets progressively more sophisticated.

The Trip consists of a series of interrelated events or “stopovers” designed to educate, connect, and elevate those who are interested in the disruptive technology opportunities for financial services. These stopovers include a foundational boot camp, workshops, a debate, and other events and activities all designed to teach how to launch or grow a FinTech business, or understand the impact of FinTech on the business you have. The trip is led by “Captains” who are experts and are pioneers in their respective fields. This include John Bailon of Satoshi Citadel Industries, Ray Refundo of Qwikwire, and Miguel Warren of Payoneer. Take this Trip and learn how to launch or grow a FinTech business, or understand the impact of FinTech on the business you have.
