Stockholm, November, 2019

Report on event

Thanks to all the attendees that joined us at WeWork on a rainy day Thursday, 28th of November. We are glad to take another 4IRE Meetup round at WeWork spacious lobby and were happy to see our loyal guests from the first gathering!

Sweden is one of the most profound leaders in the innovative FinTech industry and technology adoption, so no surprise we choose Stockholm for the series of meetups about DeFi and FinTech trends.

The networking party, traditionally if we could say that, was held at Harry B James Pub and we appreciate each and every of our guests for taking part in it.

Many thanks to our local representatives Johan Lundin and Lucas Arrefelt for assisting along the way.

Below you will find full speeches and join us at our next events!
