Information technology (IT) services company Infosys and Denmark based fintech innovation cluster Copenhagen Fintech have entered in a partnership to explore bilateral opportunities in fintech innovation.
“The partnership will enable Infosys to tap into the agility of the startup ecosystem, culture of open innovation and collaborate with industry leading talent to accelerate access and development of cutting-edge financial solutions,” Infosys said in a statement.
This collaboration will involve joint participation in events and conferences to facilitate mutual sharing of industry experience and expertise with Copenhagen Fintech’s corporate partners.
Copenhagen Fintech works with technology-led corporate and startup innovators in the region to develop Denmark and the Nordics as leading fintech hubs. It has more than 200 members -- 40 of which are startups -- and works with over 35 Nordic and global financial institutions, technology companies and advisory firms.
“Nordics is a strategic market for Infosys, and we are committed to working with Nordics corporations and financial institutions, to invest and accelerate their digital transformation journey. By bringing our global expertise in financial services to the region and helping Danish start-ups in their global ambitions by introducing them to Infosys’ client and partner networks, we aspire to strengthen the Danish cluster,” Mohit Joshi, president of Infosys, said.
Bengaluru based Infosys will engage with Nordic startups, participate in masterclasses and hackathons to share knowledge and upskill the next generation of technology leaders.
“Through this collaboration, Infosys will gain access to a leading Nordic fintech innovation platform and Nordic fintech startups will gain exposure to one of the world’s largest and most interesting markets,” Thomas Krogh Jensen, CEO of Copenhagen Fintech, said.
“Infosys’ competencies and global network will be of huge benefit to the ecosystem. Cutting edge knowledge and technology together with deep relationships with some of the world’s largest corporations and financial institutions will be the foundation of the ‘innovation bridge’ we establish between Denmark, the Nordics and India,” he said.
