Tech revolution in financial services cover - FFCON20 DIGITAL:  RISE Speakers Board --> Join Us for a Fintech Summer!

The financial services industry has been evolving at unprecedented speeds with increasing competition from both within and outside the industry, notably from entrepreneurial FinTech start-ups and non-financial technology-based companies. Some of these entrants are looking to replace the incumbents with the technological disruption while others look to partner with them. In The Technological Revolution in Financial Services, Michael King and Richard Nesbitt ultimately believe that the increased competition from the technological revolution will benefit customers and lead to a more open and inclusive financial system.

Friction Roger Dooley resize - FFCON20 DIGITAL:  RISE Speakers Board --> Join Us for a Fintech Summer!

According to data, the US economy loses $3 trillion dollars in productivity due to excess bureaucracy, and $4.6 trillion of merchandise is left in abandoned e-commerce shopping carts. Why is the cause of these appalling statistics? Roger Dooley believes it is attributed to the growing presence of ‘friction’, which he defines as the unnecessary expenditure of time, effort, or money in performing a task. In FRICTION - The Untapped Force That Can Be Your Most Powerful Advantage, Dooley combines scientific research with real life examples to illustrate how to spot out areas of friction in an organization and explains the strategies to help eliminate them, creating a more swift and efficient experience for both the business and the customer.

  • Virtual interactive forum on fintech issues & developments
  • Eight weeks, eight themes
  • Presentations from leading industry figures
  • Connecting entrepreneurs and investors
  • Networking opportunities galore

What could be more apposite than a virtual fintech conference? After all, digital technologies, including those related to finance, are part and parcel of the immense virtual world known as the internet. Without digital tech, it would be impossible for the Internet to even exist — and vice versa. So it should come as no surprise to entrepreneurs, investors and others to discover that this year the annual Fintech & Funding Conference, hosted by the National Crowdfunding & Fintech Association (“NCFA”) in conjunction with the Toronto Finance International (“TFI”), has a virtual interactive agenda. The online event — FFCON20 DIGITAL — will take place every Thursday afternoon at 2 p.m. ET from July 9 through Aug. 27.

See: Vote on your favourite FFCON20 Fintech Draft companies and see them Pitch & Demo July 9 - Aug 27

For each of the eight weeks, the event will focus on a different fintech theme. A global lineup of fintech’s finest will discuss their projects, as well as the latest trends in the space. Attendees will be treated to presentations from a number of notable companies and enjoy ample opportunity to network and engage with peers and presenters.

Since its debut in 2015, FFCON has been providing a platform for pioneers and innovators in the fintech space to share new ideas and insights with each other. The gathering has also developed into an important crucible in the fintech space, catalyzing and facilitating crucial relationships between entrepreneurs and investors. It’s no wonder, then, that FFCON has turned out to be one of Canada’s top tech-networking forums. This year’s FFCON20 DIGITAL is likely to be no different, for the overarching theme of the eight-week event is RISE.

The FFCON series of conference has, year after year, drawn professionals from around the world. Attendees can expect to meet and greet influential figures from diverse fields, including AI, blockchain and crypto, capital markets, digital banking, payments, peer-to-peer finance and wealth management. Participants find themselves in an environment designed to spur growth in the Canadian fintech industry and bring its markets to life.

FFCON event organizers believe that when open-minded and innovative professionals gather together in a convivial environment that fosters discussion and the sharing of ideas, opportunities naturally follow. As such, FFCON offers participants a wealth of opportunity to develop new leads, discover new market channels and forge partnerships around innovation, technology and financing outcomes.
