Money20:20 Rise Up launch

Money20/20 introduced its Rise Up programme, in partnership with the European Women’s Payments Network (EWPN), at Europe’s leading FinTech event – Money20/20 Europe.

The Rise Up intitiative is designed to empower the next generation of women in financial services and will give an exclusive cohort of thirty women access to a specially curated agenda of bespoke content sessions and exclusive networking opportunities.

Alongside regular programming, they will take part in one-to-one mentoring with the most respected industry leaders, private meetings with keynote speakers and special networking events.

Rise Up hopes to address the gender imbalance in leadership positions within the Financial Services and Fintech industry.

The initiative was launched at the three-day Money20/20 Europe conference. The event, held in Amsterdam, sees thousands of influential senior leaders across the industry come together to delve into the topics and trends that will shape the future of money.

Set against a backdrop of massive change in the industry, over 350 speakers will share fresh perspectives and insight on industry-critical topics, including banking transformation, payments evolution and innovation, the rise of SuperApps, AI and transformational technology, cyber security and risk management.


Networking remains a core part of Money20/20’s ethos with a mix of interactive content sessions, workshops and innovation labs, alongside a packed schedule of evening events that will allow attendees to get together and share insights while also experiencing the best of Amsterdam. The Money20/20 Street Takeover returns this year alongside an exclusive “Taste of Amsterdam” Welcome Party on the first evening.

Speaking about the event, Tracey Davies, President, Money20/20, said, “Transformation across the financial services sector is happening more rapidly than ever before with many saying the next five years will bring even bigger changes than the last five.”

“Our packed agenda in Amsterdam will dive into trends and topics that will drive that change, inspiring discussion about where the industry is going next and what we need to do to get there.”
