This was argued by Matías Friedberg, co-founder of Ixpandit Fintech Factory,in the panel on Argentine Fintech Ecosystem, in the third edition of Argentina Fintech Forum.
Matías Friedberg highlighted that: “this year was key to raising awareness of the importance of the fintech industry for the country. Not only is there a role of financial inclusion, but there is also a lot of innovation that generates quality, competitive, export employment with little training time. Argentina has to become a technology exporting country given the important human capital we have. We have an entrepreneurial gene that is what is needed to innovate and generate infrastructure for other industries.”
