“I want to thank the organizers for giving me the opportunity of presenting GuardSquare to the international audience present at IFGS 2017. Innovate Finance manages year after year to reassemble the most influential people in the FinTech field, the people that work hard to revolutionize the financial world. I didn’t think a security company would be able to win the Pitch360 competition. The fact that we did shows that FinTech companies and financial institutions are increasingly aware of the importance of security.”

– Heidi Rakels, CEO, GuardSquare
