FiBAN’s Managing Director Reidar Wasenius is very satisfied with the new board. “I’m glad to see such experienced professionals join our board in 2019. Their collective know-how is a valuable asset for FiBAN.” Wasenius notes. “As an industry organisation, we need people with insight to understand the intricacies of a rapidly evolving startup ecosystem and a financial sector simultaneously undergoing major changes. Our board members have that, as well as the foresight to understand where we need to be heading.
The two highlights of 2019 will be the EBAN Helsinki 2019 congress and the new FiBAN Follow investment vehicle. They will both contribute to FiBAN’s strategic focus, which is to improve the quality and quantity of the deal flow it provides to its members.
Enabling exit opportunities is another key aspect of improving the profitability of startup investments made by FiBAN members. Future growth is also supported by increasing cross-border investing in the New Nordic region through the Nordic Angel Program (NAP).
