Channel VAS will share its knowledge at 4YFN in Barcelona

As a leading player on fintech sector, Channel VAS will have a “starring role” at 4YFN (4 Years From Now), the innovation platform of Mobile World Congress, enabling startups, investors, corporations and public institutions to discover, create and launch new ventures together.

During the event, our founder and CEO, Bassim Haidar, will take the stage to share with startups his rich knowledge and experience on the fintech field. Mr Haidar is going to emphasize on the different role fintech companies should play in emerging markets, since the majority of people lack formal banking. Working more like a catalyst than a disruptor of the market, Channel VAS has helped millions of people to get on the digital and financial inclusion ladder by providing micro-loans and smartphone financing in a cost effective manner while unlocking new opportunities for banks and mobile operators. Through Big Data and cutting edge proprietary analytics tools Channel VAS is able to provide state of the art services, despite the gap of technological and financial infrastructure of underdeveloped regions.

4YFN is a spinoff event of Mobile World Congress and is tailor-made to connect the international startup community, investors, talent and corporations. It offers unique connecting initiatives including insightful onstage talks, technical workshops, custom networking activities, community outreach and open innovation programs, among others.

It is considered as a leading hub for digital entrepreneurship and connects the startup ecosystem globally and during the last five years, its attendees have increased by more than 10x. In 2018 more than 20300 attendees visited 4YFN. This year’s event will take place on 25-27 of February at Fira Montjuïc, Barcelona.


MWC 2019 is coming

4YFN is a critical element of Mobile World Congress, which for another year is going to be the meeting of the mobile industry. The theme of this year’s event is ‘Intelligent Connectivity’, covering the powerful combination of flexible, high-speed 5G networks, the Internet of Things, artificial intelligence and big data. According to GSMA, “Intelligent Connectivity marks the beginning of a new era defined by highly contextualised and personalised experiences, delivered when and where you want them”.

Channel VAS could not be absent from the largest mobile event in the world. We expect to see you at our stand in Hall 5 (Stand 5H51) and we will be glad to show you our new portfolio of innovative services.
