Event description
The FinTech Festival Lab Crawl explores how FinTech solutions help connect the dots between rural and urban realities in the digital age.

About this Event

This year, at the FinTech Festival Lab Crawl hosted by MUFG Bank, we take a close look at how FinTech solutions can address issues for stakeholders across the agri-food supply chain and connect the dots between urban and rural realities.

We will hear from startups and businesses that are already making a huge difference using in this space with digital tools.

We'll focus on solutions in three key areas:

- FinTech in a Smallholder World

Smallholder farmers contribute a large proportion of global agricultural output, but often lack access to formal financial services. Instead they operate in a highly cash-based informal sector, where credit is extended at very high interest rates. How can digital tools help integrate smallholders into the formal ecosystem?

- Challenges and Opportunities for SMEs in Urban and Rural Areas

In a competitive environment, SMEs require fast and reliable credit lines. However, regulations create delays and inconveniences. For example, in several countries, prospective debtors are required to be physically present at a bank branch. How can digital tools support KYC and compliance requirements to deliver a fast and secure way of doing business?

- Consumers and Health

Food products produced by smallholders in rural settings are consumed by urban consumers. What we eat, along with physical activity, has a major impact on our health. In the final section, we will hear from Omron about their health monitoring tools and ActiveSG about the role of physical activity.

Sound exciting? Join us to learn more about the power of FinTech solutions and network with prominent agri-businesses and startups!
