At Just, we are not only a financial company, but a cutting-edge technology company too. In November, Just attended two of the largest tech conferences in the world: Web Summit, in Lisbon, and Slush, in Helsinki. Every year, thousands of companies of all sizes attend these events in search of partnerships, talent, investment and more. At Web Summit, Just exhibited a stand showcasing our FX Analytics product, which attracted significant interest from passing visitors, not least due to our bold slogan: “Toward a fair financial market.”
Furthermore, our founder and CEO, Anders Nicolai Bakke, was invited to speak as part of the Web Summit programme. Anders is a serial entrepreneur who previously founded and sold mCASH, one of the first Nordic mobile payments businesses. He spoke on the topic of trust and transparency as an important differentiator in business—two values which are key to Just’s mission to disrupt the entrenched FX market.
At Slush, CTO Simon Jones met with a number of prospective partners including banks, funds, and other fintechs.
We believe that technology can change the financial markets, and so as we grow and expand our products and services, we will continue to stay close to the latest developments in fintech to allow us to work with the latest and most interesting technologies and companies.
