Welcome to Innotribe

Launched in 2009, SWIFT Innotribe brings together global innovators, investors, financial industry executives, strategists, Banks’ operations and technology leaders, and venture capitalists, all willing to drive change for the benefit of the financial service industry.

With the Innotribe Startup Challenge, we seek to bridge the gap between the Fintech startup ecosystem and the financial community, by bringing early insights into innovations that could disrupt current business models and create opportunities for new ones.

Innotribe has been supported within SWIFT’s marketing division ever since its inception five years ago. Fabian Vandenreydt is now leading Innotribe, supported by Kevin Johnson, Innotribe Startup Challenge Manager, and Audrey Rase, Innotribe Communications Specialist. Fabian will work closely with his team as we move forward with our agenda to engage, explore and facilitate ideas generation in the financial services industry.

Within Marketing he heads traffic development and strategic initiatives teams for securities, treasury and banking markets. As part of this role he takes responsibility for thought leadership across SWIFT’s strategic markets, including the management of the SWIFT Institute which engages globally with academic and research communities in financial services.
