Future Frontier Fes by FINOLAB (4F)
“4F” is an annual event for various stakeholders of financial innovation to gather and discuss their future action. There, the JFIA Award Ceremony, FINOPITCH (a pitch contest by domestic and foreign startups) and its award ceremony, various lectures, keynote speeches and panel discussions are held. It started in 2020 with the aim of becoming a participatory festival where stakeholders of innovation can share their experience and information, as opposed to a conventional conference.
