Chairman's Welcome and Opening Keynote

The New ICOnomy
The blockchain space is evolving faster than any other area of FinTech. Even common terminology used 6 months ago has changed. This panel may only scratch the surface on whether software development or venture fundraising as we know it ever be the same.
10:10 am
Hot Startups Demo
Conference demos are hand-selected by a panel of experts and there's no way to apply. They feature the latest technology, often still in the lab, from some of the top late-stage FinTech companies. Best of all.. unlike some conferences, these slots are based on pure merit and cannot be sponsored.
11:10 am
The Myth of the Fintech MVP - Keys to Disruption
Unlike numerous other verticals, going to market with a FinTech MVP is nearly impossible. FinTech companies must nurture trust as consumers expect a robust experience from the first "login". We'll learn how the most successful FinTech companies are using content marketing, UX, exclusivity, and other tricks of the trade to build momentum before they launch to consumers.

Afternoon Keynote

B2B Innovators
This panel will bring together bank innovation teams and B2B entrepreneurs to discuss innovation in the enterprise. The lure of sticky revenue, deep subject matter expertise, and access to data and distribution is compelling. But while partnerships seem to be in vogue over disruption, the entrepreneur still must navigate a minefield of bureaucratic bottlenecks, antipreneurial compliance departments, tight wallets, and questionable IP policies.

How to Raise Money in FinTech
FinTech companies are looking to both traditional venture and strategic investors to raise capital and scale. While raising from traditional venture is fairly similar across all verticals, there is an arguement that series A KPIs come later in FinTech. Strategic investors can offer unique advantages ranging from expertise to distrubution. How should FinTech look at the portfolio of funding options available and what's the future of raising capital in FinTech.

A Blessing of Unicorns - Lending Gallops Ahead
A third of the FinTech unicorns are in the lending space. Does this concentration of heavy-weights (blessing of unicorns) scare away competition or encourage founders to follow-suit?
