Dublin Tech Summit: Fintech players to look out for
With just a few days to go before the Dublin Tech Summit, we take a look at who to look out for from the fintech space.
The fastest growing tech summit in Europe, Dublin Tech Summit offers insight from some of the most influential technology leaders as part of a two day event which includes talks, panels, networking and knowledge sharing opportunities.
The summit is also keenly focused on diversity in a male-dominated field and tries to ensure events are gender balanced. Last year, the female attendee rate was 48%.
With 2018 speakers including Gary Vaynerchuck, Cindy Gallop, Aisling Hassell, Matthew Luhn, Casey Neistat and Johanna Maska, who should we look out for in 2019, particularly for those of us with a keen interest in fintech?
