Client stories

Challenge:Understand the European cashless ecosystem
Targets:Fintech startups, VCs, research institutions and government bodies
Results:Comprehensive report and innovation strategy recommendations

Japanese IT giant Fujitsu appointed us to support their innovation programme to explore new fintech business models and technologies. We were asked to identify and facilitate discussions with some of the top European startups and partner organisations in the space.

We used our extensive network to secure face-to-face meetings for Fujitsu and its partners – over a four-day visit – with 14 organisations in the UK, Germany and Denmark.

At the end of the visit, we organised a panel discussion with UK fintech industry experts. We also facilitated one-on-one workshops to help the client delegation zero-in on consumer trends and opportunity areas in the 'cashless society' in order to refine its innovation strategy further.

"Both the UK and Japan-side members of the project team were strong communicators and well-versed in the thought processes and business customs of Japanese corporates."
