Technological advancements have, and will continuously change the way people interact with their money, and with this, elevate their expectations from the financial institutions and on how the businesses are run. In a highly regulated sector such as finance and its services, emerging technologies provide the opportunity for companies to enhance competitive advantage, trustworthiness, efficiency and increased value to its customers.
Join us for the second webinar in the Tech for Impact Series that will feature innovations in the Financial Services sector, the second of four socio-economic drivers that will be featured in this series. The landscape and innovation demands in this sector will be discussed, alongside the quirks, needs and commercialisation challenges. Some existing start-up solutions that are already being applied in the sector will also be highlighted.
The webinar series is part of a pathway designed to facilitate the acceleration of your technologies and innovations to market. Take your innovative ideas from here and put them to work in upcoming workshops and bootcamps to push your vision for research to revenue to reality in 2024.
