Through its efforts over 10 years, TEB has spreaded the culture of innovation throughout the bank, made it intrinsic to all its employees and made innovation a part of its DNA finally. As it celebrates its 90th year in 2017, TEB continues to make an increasingly greater effort in order to provide multidimensional support that will nourish Turkey’s economy and also social added-value growth.

TEB is also a pioneer among Turkish banks with a recognized innovative culture and ability to bring unique solutions within its business lines.

As for their collaboration efforts with fintechs they have recently designed and ran a unique corporate incubation and procurement programme called FİNTECH Future Four.

The main objective of this initiative is to find and scout out fintechs both locally and internationally and work alongside with them to produce a meaningful solution for the Bank’s real-time problems and challenges. They have already signed up with one of the participants of the programme and getting ready to work with another one. Needless to say, they know what they are doing.

We will be their international partner to enrich the content of their collaboration effort.
