Recently we hosted our first Disruptive Technology event. ‘Globalisation of FinTech.
The event was held at the Dorchester hotel, London. We brought together leading minds in the FinTech startup space and investors for discussions around the future of FinTech and changes in the traditional banking world.
“Trust, reputation, management, expertise is what enables growth within FinTech. Whilst adding computing power/storage constantly in response to the varying user demand levels is also very important. Successful FinTech companies are the ones refining how people are organising themselves around financial products. None rely on out of the box tech, instead they let their clients dictate which apps and services they use.”
CEO Veber – Cloud & Dedicated Hosting Specialists
Our CEO, Tim Poultney shared experience and knowledge around using technology to react to rapidly expanding consumer demands from beginning a FinTech journey, to transforming into a SMB, and then on to corporation. A FinTech Silicon Valley startup case study was presented by leading industry expert Stuart Neal, Commercial Lead – Digital Gold, Royal Mint. Stuart covered the 12 things every startup should know from concept to acquisition. Neil Cattermull from Compare the Cloud discussed the Future of FinTech. Neil Laver, Sales & Marketing Director at Veber shared consumer insights from our first Disruptive Technology consumer survey.
About the Veber FinTech vs Banking Consumer Survey Report
The Veber FinTech Consumer Survey was based on discovering user perceptions of Banking, a once stable and traditional industry landscape, in comparison to what we’re now seeing which is the ever changing innovative FinTech market. The survey focusses on the trends of FinTech and whether the face of traditional banking will change by 2020.
The white paper also includes more video extracts from leading FinTech experts and an exclusive interview with George Huntley, COO The Money Platform.
