Time from bringing the financial and the technological sectors together
“Fintech” concept comes from joining the “financial” and the “technology” terms. Nevertheless, this new trend is also aimed to join two different types of business, traditionally on opposite sides: the innovative start-ups and the consolidated financial firms. In Wetech, we we think that this convergence is where the force of change lies.
