Singapore, 2nd of November 2022 – Released by the Centre for Finance, Technology and Entrepreneurship (CFTE). CFTE is glad to announce our Fintech 360 Online Course in Spanish at the Singapore Fintech Festival. The course is curated with leaders in the Digital Finance scene, and has been released due to the high demand in Fintech education in Spanish-speaking countries. The course will upskill professionals with 15-min daily lessons in an online environment taught by founders and executives from Starling Bank, Arbor Ventures, IBM, Citi and more.
“The fintech startup and venture scene [in LATAM] is unsurprisingly booming. Funding has already reached nearly $6B invested in 2021, up almost 3x since last year and 24x since 2016.”B2B Research Lead at Dealroom.co and CFTE expert.
With almost $6 billion invested in the LATAM Fintech market in 2021 and the latest regulatory events in Open Banking, announced by the National Banking and Securities Commissions in Mexico, forcing fintechs to share their data via APIs, the market has attracted a lot of attention.
“The growth of Fintech in Latin America is a classic example of ‘leapfrogging’ — Fintechs have leveraged the need for financial inclusion amongst large swathes of the population to move straight to a new generation of services.”Ricardo Anhesini, Head of Financial Services, LATAM at KPMG Brazil.
Nevertheless, the educational gap between traditional and digital finance in the market is tremendous. This is where CFTE comes in. CFTE mission is to provide quality education at scale so that professionals can have the skills and opportunities to get into the new era of finance. We believe that launching one of our best-selling courses in Spanish is an incredible way to unlock the potential of the professionals who are lacking those skills in LATAM.
“With the Fintech ecosystem in LATAM growing exponentially fast, we wanted to make sure that qualified Fintech education for professionals to accept these opportunities were not restricted to just a few people in the main financial centers, but to everyone. I believe that everyone deserves to have an education in Fintech. As the industry accelerates, unlocking new opportunities, no one should be excluded.”Tram Anh Nguyen, Co-Founder of CFTE
