Recap from Slush:
What a week!
Really exciting times for Wrapp right now! November 30th at the biggest tech event in the Nordics we announced another leap forward, Wrapp is launching with 6 new banks and launching in Finland!
Together with the announcement we hosted a panel discussion "The Future of Retail Marketing Powered by Banks". Among speakers – with our CEO & Founder Aage Reerslev – were Niklas Zennström and leading bankers Lena Apler (Founder and Chairman of Collector), Jussi Mekkonen (Executive Vice President, Deputy Head of Banking, Nordea Finland), Christoffer Rosqvist (Managing Director, Aktia), Rikard Josefson (CEO of Länsförsäkringar) and Fredrik Öhrn (CEO of Sodexo).
The combination of app-savvy users – always online with their smartphone – new payment technologies and easy access to data opens the door for existing and new players. Wrapp is offering retailers the marketing tools of the future today by partnering with the banks. Wrapp and the banks can together offer the consumers the most personalised rewarding experience ever - the consumers' data working for their benefit.
"The data is valuable and it needs to be creating value for customer. What Wrapp is doing is ahead of this change"
We are delighted to hear all the positive feedback from attendees at Slush and on social media. Some of you are asking us about next year and when the launches for the new banks are happening. We ensure you, there are even more surprises for this year! We encourage you to check our Twitter and LinkedIn page for updates as we come out with more news soon.
