Berlin has been chosen to host the IoT and fintech hub, as part of the national Digital Hub Initiative. As the largest fintech player in the city, the company builder finleap was selected by the Berlin government to run the hub and drive this national transformation. The fintech hub “H:32” is an open house for anyone interested in the digitalization of finance. It is a place where international investors, banks, insurance providers and fintechs can meet, work and learn from one another.
finleap moved to new headquarters at Hardenbergstraße 32 in July 2017. In the former Berliner bank building, across 11,000 square meters on eight floors, the company established its unique vision of a fintech hub together with “Scaling Spaces”, a full service office provider. The hub hosts offices for more than 30 fintechs, insurtechs, and corporates along with community areas and a whole floor dedicated to industry events. From roundtables with politicians to fintexx – women in finance meetings, and from tech meetups to workshops – the event floor boasts incredible views over Berlin and provides a central networking area in the hub. Through this, the finleap ecosystem of portfolio companies aims to further expand their presence within the industry and be opened up to third party players. The fintech hub “H:32” will also be the place for satellite events during international conferences and the first touch point for national and international media on fintech topics.
