The Future of Financing

Amazon, China & Robots?

How will capital flow in the future?

People use a lot of buzzwords to predict the future and describe the potential paths the world of finance may take as it continues to evolve. Much of it seems to be just talk, but there are also real patterns emerging that point to an increasingly efficient and democratic future for the financial sector globally.

We will take you for a ride along the paths of the future and show you if and why traditional financial institutions might lose ground and where new solutions might emerge from surprising sources.

Check out last years forum and come join us at the FinanceEstonia Financing Forum 2019!

    Keynote: Just Another Start-up: Building an 80-kilometer Undersea Tunnel – Romantic Dream or Pure Reality

    Is it possible to run and manage big projects like start-up companies? Is Vesterbacka’s Talsinki plan really doable? Has anyone in the world done anything similar to that? How are such projects done in China and in the US?

  • 13:45
    Panel: Removing Government from the Financing Equation – Could That Be the Future?

    Until now, all major projects in the world have been funded by the government. Is that going to be the norm also in the future or could we reduce the role of the government and raise capital in a more efficient way? Why can or can’t we finance big projects the same start-ups are funded?

Vaba Lava

Telliskivi 60a, C1-building, Tallinn 10412, Estonia

Vaba Lava is housed in a former metal workshop, which was transformed into a simple and elegant steel, glass, and concrete venue. While redesigning the building, their primary concern was to preserve as much of the historic building as possible to create a symbiosis of old and new. The aesthetics of the building follows the “form follows function” principle.

It is situated in the Telliskivi creative area in the neighbourhood of Kalamaja (a subdistrict of Põhja-Tallinn) and the Baltic Railway Station. Kalamaja is a rapidly developing urban district with a potential of becoming a future cultural centre of Tallinn with a focus on new, avant-garde, and experimental work – a place where is room for taking risks in and across artistic disciplines.
