The 24 of May has been an important day for Allevo and for the open source initiatives. FINkers United, the first “unconference” event in Romania, gathered experienced users and customers from the financial industry, various legal, technical and business experts, recognized thought leaders, to talk about and share opinions on Allevo’s initiative to develop an open source application for financial transactions processing and, simultaneously, to create a community around it.
The participants debated on the challenges of such a project, bringing valuable contributions based on their diverse knowledge and experience, therefore helping co-create, with us, at Allevo, the foundation of this innovative solution. It was so refreshing to get different people to openly discuss a theme of interest and overcoming to achieve such a fantastic cooperation and level of networking.
The event also benefited from the distinguished presence of our panelists:
Kosta Peric, Head of Innovation and Co-founder of Innotribe, SWIFT
Petru Rares, President Romanian Banking Institute
Radu Ghetea, President CEC Bank
Rodica Tuchila, Director ARB (Romanian Banking Association)
Ruud van der Horst, Independent Consultant
Walter van Holst, Consultant, MITOPICS
Many thanks to all the participants for making FINkers United a successful event.
