Fintech O2O: Fireside Chat with Vikram Pandit

The 2007 financial crisis left us with many lessons – about the dangers of excess debt, the risks of overly complex investment products and the fallibility of insufficient policies. For the banking industry, the economic collapse was a wake-up call – not just about the need to fix its balance sheets, but about the urgency with which it had to evolve and strengthen the entire financial system. About a decade after the financial crisis, the the industry continues adapting to new regulations, new market challenges and the advent of new technology.

Vikram S. Pandit, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of The Orogen Group and the former CEO of Citigroup, will join NexChange for an in-depth discussion to talk about how financial services has changed since the financial crisis, what improvements still need to be made, how financial technology is disrupting the industry and what challenges and opportunities lie ahead.

Mr. Pandit will be taking part in a fireside chat with Telis Demos, a banking reporter at The Wall Street Journal. He writes about the banking industry and how it is being reshaped by technology. Prior to that, he wrote about IPOs and the rise of private capital markets. He was a Scripps Howard Award winner in 2015 and a Loeb Award finalist in 2013. He previously covered exchanges and global markets for the Financial Times, and has also worked at Fortune magazine and The New Republic.

This one-day workshop is designed to provide fintech entrepreneurs, investors, counsel and other professionals with a general introduction to the unique and sometimes counter-intuitive way that banking is regulated in the United States.

FinTech School's Ethereum - Solidity Programming Workshop

The Ethereum blockchain has caught fire. Both public ventures and private consortiums large and small are building new Smart Contract innovations on Ethereum. Ether has rapidly risen as a crypto currency standard and is beginning to rival Bitcoin in reach and market cap. 

Smart Contracts can be written in a few languages today but Solidity, an official language of Ethereum, is one of the most commonly used languages worldwide to write Smart Contracts.

Anything from Initial Coin Offerings (ICO’s) to Large Volume Transaction Systems (LVTS’s) can be built, and are being built, with Solidity.

Training is extremely scarce as there are few educational resources available on Solidity and there is almost no in-person training available.

FinTech School is organizing a two-day workshop where you can learn Solidity. It will begin with the underlying concepts,and will build from there to hands-on coding exercises.

Upon completion of this workshop participants will  be ready to develop their first end to end Dapp (Distributed Application), be better prepared to apply for Blockchain Developer and Architect jobs and receive a Certificate of Completion via blockchain.

Female Founders in Tech Competition

Know a female-founded or led startup with solutions for financial services or insurance industries? We are excited to support Quesnay's inaugural Female Founders in Tech Competition, that aims to address the very real gap in female leaders by recognizing and supporting female founded / co-founded startups that positively impact the financial services industry.

There is a distinct lack of representation and startup funding among women and we think the competition format will provide a way to fund, support and mentor female founders in the financial services arena, where the gap is particularly stark - within the Fintech space, only 7% of companies have women on the executive teams, while in Insurtech, this number is only 4%.

The application period will be open from October 1-31, 2017

September SF FinTech: Future of FinTech = APIs ft. Xignite, Yodlee, Final & SVB

They say the future of banking, and FinTech, lies in the use of APIs. Enough talking about them- Let's see what they can do. Join us for this set of demos, followed by a panel that expands on the business case and technical ability of the industry's leading APIs. 

Featuring:

- Aaron Frank, Founder & CEO of Final

- Al Chang, CTO of Xignite

- Deepak Shah, Director of Engineering at Envestnet | Yodlee

- Mark Vermeersch, Head of API Banking at Silicon Valley Bank

Demos:

Xignite is one of the most popular API Platforms in the world with more than 1.5 Trillion API requests served in 2016 alone. Financial Market Data is the lifeblood of finance and the fuel of Fintech. But sourcing and integrating it has always been a hassle — until now. 

With Envestnet Yodlee APIs, developers can easily leverage the Envestnet | Yodlee Financial Data Platform to gain access to over 15,000 data sources, including bank direct deposit accounts, credit cards, investments, loan accounts, and other financial data for innovative financial apps and services. Offering speedy integration and seamless data access, we created our financial APIs with a vision to not only be a leader in providing financial data, but to deliver a world-class developer experience. 

Final has built a credit card issuing technology company from scratch. Where most of the bigger banks in the U.S. rely on COBOL/mainframe code and SOAP APIs, we've developed a modern core architecture and RESTful APIs that we'd love to show off.

Agenda:
6:30-7:00pm Registration & Networking
7:00-8:00pm Demos & Panel Discussion

Today more than ever, we want to take a stand against the injustices we see in our own neighborhoods, across the country and around the world. Just as our consumption choices send signals to corporations about what’s important to us in the things we buy, so too do the choices we make concerning our finances. Luckily, an increase in demand fueled by technological advances have created more options than ever before.
