How started in 2014

Prior to that, he was a public distribution manager for financial product providers in Switzerland and did fintech (Trading-IT) projects since 2005.

König has been involved in the Swiss fintech industry since 2010, and it was clear to him since then that technology would dramatically transform the banking, financial services and insurance sector. In 2014, upon the realisation that a comprehensive fintech news and resources portal with considerable scale was still missing, König decided to launch the Fintech News Network to fill the gap.

Today, the Fintech News Network is present in four continents, covering fintech news across 44 different countries and delivering key insights from fintech experts to a massive community of more than 400K members across all social media and satellite platforms combined.

In addition to that, the Fintech News Network team also produces fintech startup maps, infographics and reports on local markets in partnership with leading firms in the industry, trade groups and other market participants, to update the public on the industry’s latest developments.

Commenting on what’s next for Fintech News Network, König said that the Middle East will be the major area of focus for the year to come.

“I plan to focus much more on the Middle East and I just moved to Dubai. Fintech in the Middle East feels like fintech in Singapore back in 2015. Also without travel restrictions, I would be interested in visiting Africa, and explore the African fintech market.”

König also wanted to thank his team:

“The Fintech News Network would not be here without our dedicated team working remotely from all over the world. They have been instrumental in ensuring the growth of the different publications. I would like to thank each and every one of them for their dedication”
