We had to recently postpone our first “analog” event of the FCM2020 in Yangon, the Initial Pitch Session, due to concerns about coronavirus. We will soon be reaching out to all of you with detailed information on next steps. We will provide access to all information on our Short-listed Fintechs, including pitches and short videos. We will re-do the time line of events and activities, perhaps spreading them out over a longer period of time.
The coronavirus has not done away with the need for financial technology to promote financial inclusion in Myanmar. We are going to use this opportunity to develop a new approach to continue the programme.
We therefore ask all participants in the FCM2020 programme to bear with us as we refocus our activities online, and as we construct a fully digital platform to run this challenge programme. Within the next few days we will send links to all of you so that you can enjoy the pitches and videos from our Finalists. We launch a weekly blog, transform the Deep Dives into “Deep Webinars”, and develop compelling content to bring the best quality fintech solutions to Myanmar now.
Thanks for your patience–and watch this space and also your email inboxes for updates.”
