Fintech Brains get active for Global Entrepreneurship Week
On Friday 17 November (Fintech Friday), in celebration of Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) 2017, finance and technology entrepreneurs, investors, accelerator leaders and industry disruptors from Germany and United Kingdom will join forces to generate ideas and create action plans forecasting a future for Fintech beyond #BREXIT.
This meeting of minds is broadcast from 11.00 am GMT live for an hour from Level 39, London and online at www.theglobalbrainstorm.com/fintech/. Event participants will be guided through a fresh thinking exercise designed to encourage lateral and literal thinking. Disrupting usual thinking, broadening perceptive by sharing diverse opinions, collaborating constructively and creating new connections, participants will conceptualise innovative ideas and open opportunities for the future of Fintech.
A common consensus is expected to emerge from the parallel thinking that participants engage in during the brainstorm. This will provide the Fintech sector with insight and understanding in how best to develop projects and future plan.
Expert speakers include Thomas Funke (Co-Director of TechQuartier), Asif Faruque (Head of Content, Level 39) and other leading Fintech influencers. Celia Gates (author of From Brainwave To Business and founder of the Global Brainstorm) will chair this creative conversation. Participants are invited to post comments and questions directly to the panel whilst developing their own ideas by contributing to a collective mind map, published live and available after the event.
Insights, understandings and open source ideas gained from the brainstorm will be shared with the Global Entrepreneurship Network, the Fintech UK and Fintech Germany communities and for the benefit of individuals and organisations looking to optimize operations.
“A conversation like this isn’t taking place anywhere else.” says Thomas Funke of TechQuartier, a Fintech business accelerator based in Frankfurt.
