Orrick and creditshelf Host Business Breakfast on Alternative Financing Measures for Medium-Sized Companies

Sponsored Event | April.06.2017 | 8:30am - 11:30am (Central European Summer Time)

Orrick Düsseldorf

Alternative forms of financing such as crowdfunding, (online) direct lending, factoring, finetrading and other forms of financing are becoming increasingly important and are thus changing the financing projects of German medium-sized companies. In the future, conventional banks and savings banks will no longer be solely responsible for the financing projects of German SMEs. For this reason, new suppliers, such as innovative FinTechs, will gain in significance in the market and will function as a useful complement to the traditional bank.

How does the house bank change in times of digitization? What is behind the term "Mittelstand Financing 4.0"?

At our event we offer you the opportunity to discuss these questions and to get in touch with representatives from various financing areas.

The event will be held in German language.
