Episode 143: Ecosystem Zoom In – The Cypriot Case

Secluded golden sand beaches extended through the Mediterranean sea with an average of 320 sunny days, plus … a fintech ecosystem? That’s right, after the big success of the Cyprus FinTech Summit, the team invited Andreas Livadiotis – THE local fintech mogul, to help us find some fantastic guests to join us and tell us exactly where are the banks in Cyprus, how can we involve the regulator more in the work performed by the industry players and exactly how (providing solutions throughout the episode) to make sure we increase visibility on the local scene – hopefully in time for the upcoming Cyprus week in 2023.

Meet the guests!
