Fintech Fight Club Stories

Fintech Fight Club aka the “FFC Luxembourg”, organized by Farvest and LHoFT Teams, will take place on May 22nd from 16:00 to 18:00 to end at its best ICT Spring, the major global tech conference.

In Luxembourg, the whole Fintech community and beyond is committed to move forward together with  one promise for which Luxembourg stands: “Let’s make it happen”.

FFC Luxembourg is about going against normalcy and the safe little bubble we have become accustomed to living in. With the commitment and energy of our Fighters, we support and back up 2 awesome charities:

The FFL (Fondation Follereau Luxembourg) is an NGO-D which concentrates its activities on community health and help for children in distress in 9 different countries from the African continent. Your contribution to the association will permit to build a maternity in Benin;

L’Ile aux Clowns is an asbl which has for primary objective to bring cheerfulness, joy and smiles to people facing, temporarily or not, hard living conditions. The clowns take action in hospital environments as well as in any other social and health establishment or structure. They are available for both children and seniors.
