About the event


Digital competition is increasing from established companies and new networks emerging in the US and Asia. A key to success has been use of data, and their ability to leverage collaboration and partnerships to drive innovation.


In Europe, we have a strong track record of leveraging technology to build competitive advantage and improve efficiency.


But, despite having fostered a number of successful digital companies such as Klarna, Spotify, iZettle and Skype, we have yet to exploit the full potential of digital innovation.


We would like to explore how we together with Intrum, Spain South Summit and other visionary partners can collaborate to drive the innovation agenda in Europe.


Please join us for this executive cross-industry event in Madrid on April 3rd.

We will invite keynote speakers to share examples and challenge the audience on these topics. We will also include time for reflection and discussions.  


All participants will also be invited to visit Intrum’s “Hackathon for financial wellbeing” live in Madrid to experience open innovation first hand.
