The launch of business events by industry can make a significant contribution to the growth strategies of cities and states. In 2015 Aloysius Arlando, Chief Executive of SingEx Holdings, co-created the Singapore Fintech Festival as Asia’s hub for the intersection of its finance and tech sectors. The legacies of this event launch with partners including the Monetary Authority of Singapore, and the Association of Banks in Singapore, are already clear to see. Over $2 billion of investment was secured in 2018 alone for both fintech start-ups and established businesses.
