Finoverse (previously FINNOVASIA), the officially appointed organiser of the Hong Kong FinTech Week, has announced at the opening of HKFTW 2022 its expansion into North America, the Middle East and the scale up into web3.
This marks a major step into Finoverse’s growth, following the partnership with The Securities Commission of The Bahamas, and Government of The Bahamas, to host a global fintech and web3 festival on 24-26 January 2023 in Nassau, The Bahamas.
The in-person festival, branded as D3 Bahamas, aims to host over 3,000 industry leaders to discuss the future of web3, blockchain, crypto, decentralised finance, central bank digital currencies, green finance, and more.
D3 Bahamas will take place in the following week after the World Economic Forum in Switzerland.
“The leadership of the traditional world will meet at Davos, and then the leadership of the new digital world will meet in the Bahamas,” said Anthony Sar, co-founder and CEO of Finoverse. In addition to the Bahamas, the company is also now in active conversations with the governments and regulators in the Middle East to host its flagship event there in 2023.
Highlighting the expansion and growth, the company also announces the completion of an extensive rebranding effort unveiling its new brand identity, logo and name – Finoverse. The new brand represents the new chapter for the company, as it continues to facilitate growth for Hong Kong’s and Asia’s fintech ecosystem since 2015.
Finoverse has been involved in projecting Hong Kong on the global fintech stage, by bringing over 80 fintech unicorns to the Hong Kong Fintech Week. It aims to continue to work closely with the Hong Kong government and regulators, and act as a fintech ecosystem bridge between the East and West.
