Fintechs & Banking: 2018 and beyond

The Financial Services industry has seen disruption by several pioneering fintech startups that are re-imagining every type of financial activity – from banking to payments to wealth management and more – putting conventional financial services players under unprecedented pressure – and also – creating new opportunities for them.

Disruption & collaboration are both the order of the day and more partnerships between banks and fintechs are expected in 2018. The question is, what is the right partnership model? How can fintechs help banks keep up with the pace of innovation?

On Wednesday, February 21st SAP Startup Focus and Endeavor are bringing together the best technology experts, startups and thought leaders in the New York Fintech space to explore challenges and opportunities in the space, how can enterprises and startups collaborate, and the state of the Fintech market.
