Madrid Capital FinTech (MAD FinTech) has signed a collaboration agreement with the Madrid Association of Economists to promote collaboration and open innovation to develop training and information activities on FinTech disruption.
Partnership for growth
The agreement was signed by the president of the cluster, Salvador Molina, and the dean-president of the Madrid Association of Economists, Amelia Pérez Zabaleta. It will enable smooth collaboration between the two institutions to promote the development of the FinTech industry and the transformation of the economy through technology.
The signing of the agreement, which took place at the Club Financiero Génova, will allow MAD FinTech to collaborate closely with Madrid’s leading institution of Economists. For the Association of Economists, the alliance with MAD FinTech will enable it to offer training content on FinTech and new technologies applied to economics, finance, banking and insurance to its members.
Webinar on European funds
The training of members of both organisations will be enhanced and joint events will be organised as part of these initiatives. As an example of this collaboration, next week a first webinar will be held on the NextGenerationEU European funds, for which the MAD FinTech cluster has created a Project Board. The webinar will be accessible to members of the FinTech Commission of the Association, as well as to members of the Madrid Association of Economists.
About the Madrid College of Economists

Since then, it has been working to represent the Economist profession, with the aim of organising the practice of the profession, the exclusive representation of the profession and the defence of the professional interests of its members.
