Cooperation in Fintech field
“At Startup Grind Global-2020 we are not looking for investments, but for new international partners to develop cooperation in the field of Fintech. That is why we take part in this conference as a partner of the event organizers – Startup Grind, not as applicants. We have excellent, working products – our own processing center ProCard and payment service ConcordPay, which we will present during Startup Grind Global-2020. With technology becoming more important than money, we are interested in developing partnerships with large companies. Moreover, we have experience of good cooperation both with the world payment systems VISA, MasterCard, and the largest PSP companies,” commented Yuri Zadoya.
The bank believes that Ukrainian Fintech has something to offer to the world leaders of the industry and its a chance to participate in different formats in events held in Silicon Valley.
Concord Bank as a regular IT holder

In particular, in November, a teleconference organized by the bank was held for participants of the ITEM industry conference, during which Ukrainian participants communicated with representatives of Silicon Valley Nikita Safronenko (Co-founder & COO Unicorn Lab) and Sergey Sema (Software Engineer at Google). Following their stay in Silicon Valley at Startup Grind in February, the bank team promises to share news and observations.
