Industry Associations

The CCAF collaborates with industry associations to collectively advance countries' representation in the Cambridge Fintech Ecosystem Atlas. The collaboration is aimed to promote the visibility of a country's/region's fintech ecosystem to the Atlas audience including regulators, investors, the development community, and the general public.

The associations periodically add, review and update fintech companies operating within their select verticals, country and/or regions. The following are the industry associations we have partnered with:
