The Fintech revolution is changing the world of finance. The global Fintech market now stands at USD500 billion a year, and is estimated to threaten 10-40% of retail banking revenues and 20-40% of profits by 2025. Israel is the main Fintech power next to the US and the UK, with 14 R&D centers, global disruptors in all market segments, and Tel Aviv emerging as a key financial center in just a few years. Why is this small country of eight million so strong in this exponentially growing industry?

Our Associate Professor, Peter Szilagyi delivered this presentation and a prominent representative of the Fintech industry also joined the discussion.

Our invited expert was József Nyíri, managing partner of BNL Growth Partner (, a fintech-focused smart money company active in the EMEA region. He is a hands-on innovator and growth leader with more than a decade of fintech experience in successfully building up digital innovation based technologies and sales teams. A visionaire and speaker on digital transformation of the banking industry, connecting large organizations and disruptive software companies, he will share with us his views and experiences.

My CEU Business School education has been a key differentiator during an otherwise very competitive recruitment process. I would like to thank all my great peers of the 2013-14 cohort and the wonderful faculty at the B-School for the valuable learning experience I had during my time in BP."
