About Us

Bharat Fintech companies are outpacing the global market by building innovative business models and keeping technology at the centre. They have received almost USD 13B in funding since 2019.This growth is being driven by the tripartite effort of Regulatory bodies, Financial Institutions and the Fintechs themselves. As the industry assimilates and adopts to the emerging fintech business models, a larger discussion on how the leaders are visualizing the evolution and growth of Bharat Fintech Ecosystem is much needed. With this intent, The Digital Fifth is organizing the 'Bharat Fintech Summit' from 7-8 February, 2023 to share the Perspective Ground Zero in this space. The event will also discuss the different Fintech sectors, business & technology practices as well as regulations & policies that are enabling Bharat to scale on the global stage. These two days will witness thought provoking panel discussions, insightful fireside chats, solution demos, expo booths of the latest offerings and much more.
