3S Money headed to sunny Portugal on Monday for the Payments Tomorrow annual conference in Lisbon, Portugal, where some of the biggest names and executives in the fintech industry gathered to discuss the future of payments. 

CEO and founder of 3S Money, Ivan Zhiznevsky, kicked things off on Tuesday with a Keynote speech on building a fintech unicorn (a startup with a valuation of over $1 billion) without Venture Capital (VC) funding.  

In his inspirational session, Ivan challenged the conventional path to unicorn status, giving listeners practical guidelines on how to get there in today's startup landscape. From explaining how not to run into the “wall” to deciding on your end game, no stone was left unturned! 



In addition to Ivan’s keynote speech, our CRO, Dr Andrea Noormon, also graced the Payments Tomorrow panel to shed light on the future of payments within the EU. 

Her insights provided a glimpse into financial inclusion, EU banking infrastructure, how 3S Money protects against fraud and much more.


At 3S Money, our goal is to break down the barriers around international trade and create a more financially inclusive environment where businesses can thrive. Payments Tomorrow is where those industry-changing conversations happen.
