Fintech Nation™ is a not-for-profit grassroots platform founded by Varun Mittal to bring together the fintech community, regulators, investors, startups and corporates together. Started in 2020 with the development of the Fintech Nation book, it currently supports access and scaling talent, capital, policy and venture development in Singapore. It has recognized over 250 individuals through the Fintech 65 platform and invested in multiple startups through Fintech Nation Fund.
In the long-term scheme of things, it doesn't matter who came first; instead, who did things the right way. Singapore's economic and fintech policies are a unique example of balancing social welfare with economic development.
System of economics to let market forces define the majority of outcomes, while a progressive government develops the broader structure of guidelines and policy investments to enable innovation and competition to develop further.
Unlike the international model of advocating disruption, Singapore practices a conciliatory approach of picking vital focus areas of innovation & then providing all possible resources to nurture them like a compassionate gardener.
Proudly collaborating with the
best fintech partners in the ecosystem
brought together to achieve a common goal.
The fintech journey of Singapore has been a story of relentless pursuit of excellence to build a global financial service hub with limited means and lots of aspirations. The slogan “Dream big. Start small. Move fast” brought together regulators, startups, investors, corporates and everyone else to achieve a common goal.
In 2020, the fintech community in Singapore came together to create a not for profit grassroots movement called, Fintech Nation , to bring the journey of Singapore to the world and enable the ecosystem to build for the future.
