This is really at the cutting edge of what is happening at the Silicon Valley’s intersection with Finance.

I witnessed a lot of major banks in attendance and some really exciting start-up companies focusing on everything from Big Data, to Predictive Analytics and Artificial Intelligence.

-- Barbara Lewis, CMO, Altiscale.
What I loved is the breadth of the segments covered here…

there was wealth, consumer, business and technology. I saw great representation from across the industry – Fintechs and Large Banks. Some insights were really helpful and meeting other people and comparing notes was a revelation by itself!



Our event will witness a plethora of Promising start-ups and Venture Capitalists matching their
visions, thus making it ‘the breeding ground’ for some of the most powerful Fintechs of the future.

Lots of innovative ideas! Great networking!

The event combined the whole fusion of Financial plus Technology innovation!
