The Shift Team has been creating technology conferences for over 7 years. With their premier event being Shift Dev, the largest Developer Conference in Southeast Europe, which brings over 1300+ attendees from around the world in one place. Now, Shift Money will take that mantle as their biggest event, bringing delegates from around the world of FinTech to the beautiful city of Zagreb, Croatia.   

The quick development of financial technologies and their increasing influence on financial services are reshaping the whole industry and completely changing the role of traditional financial institutions. Innovations are mainly coming from startups, who seem to be the primary source of disruption for conventional banks and give a lot of opportunities as well as risks, for the traditional financial environment. These rapid changes, such as cryptocurrencies and mobile banking, urged the industry to react quickly and reconsider the role of traditional banking.   


This is why Shift Money gathers representatives from the whole financial and technology sector, no matter their size or stage, in one place to find new partners, create connections and find new opportunities. On the stage, more than 40 leading experts will share their ideas and experiences about Insurance, lending, blockchain, cryptocurrencies, problems of ICOs and payments. A few of them are coming straight from the companies such as Barclays, The Economist, IBM, CoinBase and others.
