Two new members and the appointment of 4 Vice Presidents. ItaliaFintech, the Italian Association that brings together Fintech operators in Italy, is expanding its own member base and is launching a project for the protection and support of Fintech companies, drawing on the skills of our four new vice presidents in different areas: payments, savings, investments and loans.

Two new members have joined us: the Banca Progetto, specializing in the credit market for families and businesses, including through digital channels, and DOORWAY, a platform for equity investing online.

Banca Progetto is a digital bank created to provide financial support for Italian SMEs,” says Paolo Fiorentino, CEO of Banca Progetto. “So joining ItaliaFintech was an obvious decision that is fully in line with our shared need to accelerate the evolution of the traditional banking model. We share the Association’s mission because it is essential, particularly at this time, that the institutions and the regulator facilitate financial digitalization as much as possible, supporting the most innovative Fintech initiatives and promoting synergies with the banks.”

Antonella Grassigli, co-founder and CEO of Doorway: “Joining ItaliaFintech represents another step forward for Doorway in the positioning of our startup in the context of Fintech and disruptive innovation in Italy. Investing in the real economy through technological platforms is a coming trend and we are happy to be a part of this trend together with other people like us who think that Fintech is the way to protect investors and consumers in general in the best possible way.”
