On 5th September 2019, 4IRE arranged a meetup devoted to innovations in Fintech with Chromia and Regtech Association in Sweden.

We were very pleased to see all participants at the event and host it at WeWork. It was a very cozy space and inspiring startup environment. We appreciated also our local representatives Johan Lundin and Lucas Arrefelt, who were assisting us with the arrangements of the event. Stockholm is a very special city for our company since we have been collaborating with lots of Swedish FinTech companies for over 8 years and are especially honored to be involved in projects supported by SEB, GIZ, and government entities.

Thus, we decided to arrange an event for sharing our background in Defi/Fintech and invited our close partners from Chromaway (TOP 5 Blockchain Product in Sweden 2019), Innobridge Accelerator, helping the FinTech startups with regulations issues in Sweden for sharing their knowledge with FinTech startups founders, Product Owners, and FinTech fans.

Jorgen Mundin, Chief Solution Architect at Chromaway, also shared more info about Chromia blockchain and presented our mutual project in Green Debt Market supported by SEB, GIZ, Ohman, MISTRA, and government entities in Sweden and Germany called Green Assets Wallet. This platform based on blockchain for green investments has already moved from Proof of Concept (PoC) to a permanent technology.

It attracted huge interest among the audience since it showed a real case in using blockchain for transparent impact verification and empowered investors to make sound financial and sustainable choices. The networking party was held at Harry B James Pub and the very appreciate CEO at Chromaway, Henrik Hjelte who couldn’t join the event, however, did his best for being present at the party.
