Fintech Revolution, the ever-conquering French fintech
Stronger, all together! The annual day organized by France Fintech was held on October 19 at the Maison de la Mutualité under the title “Riders on the storm”. Faced with a difficult situation, particularly in terms of finding financing, French fintechs are holding up against the storm.

And thanks to the European passport, they are backed by the largest market in the world, Europe, or 450 million consumers, recalled Alain Clot. Bpifrance and France Fintech have also published the fintech panorama 2023 which illustrates the richness of the French landscape.
