The New Age of Fintech: Disruption Through Collaboration
Opening remarks from Ben, Founder & CEO of FinTech Junction by People & Computers.
Ben will open the event, introduce the sponsors, partners, and speakers and share some highlights.
Passionate about customer success, business and culture transformation through partnerships and technology driven innovation.
Driving cloud-enabled business growth through partner ecosystem and technology transformation to empower organizations in their journey to achieve business growth by better engaging their customers, empowering their employees, optimizing their operations and re-inventing their products.
The collaboration between startups and financial entities creates the potential for innovation and excellence for both worlds. The new ‘building block’ can be seen as an important part of the creation of the “next step in the evolution of finance”.
One example of fintech development is the ability to create Digital Currencies, that have been issued till now, mostly by startup companies. These days they are also being developed by Central Banks and Tech Giants.
Due to the ability to ‘program’ this new type of Money with Smart Contracts – Ethical and Moral dilemmas are raised. How will the future of Finance and Money look like? That is up to us to determine.
