On November 27th & 28th, however, Digital Freedom Festival will host Norvik Banka Investors' Lounge, where more high level discussions on Fintech will take place.


"We're truly delighted to have Norvik Banka as our official partner for the 2nd consecutive year," says Dagnija Lejiņa, co-founder and CEO of Digital Freedom Festival. "We want corporations and startups to work together in order to boost development and innovation in the region. Latvia is at the bottom of the list of innovative development in the EU, even though Latvia has one of the highest growth rates of innovation. That's why we believe Latvia and the Baltics has the potential to become a region, where we could see an influx of modern technology development. With the help and support of our partners, our festival is progressively becoming a more influential platform for inspiration, education and networking opportunities. Entrepreneurs must stay up to date on the latest developments in the tech world in order for them to benefit economic development in Latvia."


"Norvik Banka is continuously pursuing a strategy of supporting digital innovation in order to enhance our ability to provide financial services for our clients, and to become the leader in this field," says Oliver Bramwell, CEO of Norvik Banka. "Cooperating with the Digital Freedom Festival is an effective way to inform the general public on the latest developments in FinTech, and to stay in touch with the most recent trends. We're pleased to continue our partnership with the Digital Freedom Festival, which undeniably has become one of the most significant events in the Baltics concerning Fintech."


This year's main topics at Digital Freedom Festival will include Smart Cities and Cybersecurity, Artificial Intelligence, Green Technologies, Fintech and Digital Detox.


Members of corporations will have the opportunity to meet startup entrepreneurs to discuss the ways in which their corporate services can become more innovative and attractive to clients, and a chance to meet policy makers to discuss the support necessary to foster an innovative environment and boost entrepreneurship.
