An opportunity for learning not just sales

Remember, FinTech Hive at DIFC is about mentoring and collaboration, rather than purely sales. While new business may be one positive outcome for your business, it should not be your primary objective. To get the most from the experience, you should come with an open mind and a willingness to learn and collaborate with some of the leading financial institutions from across the region and the globe.
