‘In A Few Days’ to be screened in Castellbisbal
The documentary ‘In A Few Days’, which recounts the creation process of the Catalan fintech 11Onze, will be screened at the Casal Cultural i Recreatiu de Castellbisbal. It will take place on Thursday, 9 June, at half past seven in the evening.
Castellbisbal will be the first Catalan town to enjoy the public screening of the documentary ‘In A Few Days’. It will be held on 9 June at 7:30 p.m. at the Aula de Cultura del Casal Cultural i Recreatiu de Castellbisbal. Toni Mata, Content Director at 11Onze and director of the film, and Isaac Sène, Product Manager at 11Onze, will be in charge of the presentation and will answer questions from the audience. Access to the event will be free of charge.
Mercè Comas, founding investor of 11Onze, has been the main driving force behind this screening. “When I’m part of something, I like to take advantage of any loophole I can to contribute to its realisation”, she explains about the initiative.
“Everyone should see the documentary. We are not used to call a spade a spade”.
Comas considers that “everyone should see the documentary because we are not used to transparency and to calling a spade a spade”. In this sense, she stresses that “it shows a project made by people who believe, who love their country“, and “the ability of the management team to find alternatives in the face of obstacles” in circumstances in which “many businesses would have closed down”. “These values must be instilled if we want to build a new, different country”, she concludes.
A success story with a lot of bumps in the road
La Plaça, 11Onze’s private social network, was launched on 22 April 2021. Its financial arm, El Canut, was scheduled to be ready shortly afterwards. But it had to be delayed until 1 October. Why? What happened?
‘In A Few Days’, which can be watched free of charge at La Plaça, reflects the effort, enthusiasm and responsibility of the team that made El Canut possible, setting up a revolutionary Catalan financial institution. But it also points out the obstacles and the foul play that had to be overcome.
The documentary, therefore, presents very positive things, such as a human team capable of rebuilding and keeping a financial institution operational when some other people tried to derail it, but it also points out dark points. For example, how is it possible for a German fintech to go back on a signed agreement at the last minute? Why is the Bank of Spain pursuing 11Onze if the entity had not applied for a banking licence in Spain? And the last unpleasant question: who infiltrated a person into 11Onze?
A revolutionary entity
11Onze is the first financial community in Catalonia and provides its customers with a digital financial institution that allows them to control their savings at all times.
Along with its digital banking services (El Canut), which are compliant with financial services standards and PSD2 (European Payment Services Directive), 11Onze fills a gap in the fintech sector with its private social network and its growing educational library, aimed at empowering people with knowledge about finance, economics and sustainability.
11Onze offers screenings of the documentary throughout Catalonia, with representatives from the organisation on hand to answer questions. Anyone who would like to organise a screening in their municipality can contact [email protected] to arrange it.
