From payment processing to corporate banking, the financial industry is being turned upside down by exponential technologies such as artificial intelligence, digital currencies, robotics, nanotechnologies, crowdfunding, and computing systems. Startups are scheming ways to solve consumer needs while titans are struggling to turn ships on a dime and react to young new players.
We may not see the downfall of the world’s largest institutions right away, but it’s safe to say that these technologies are rewriting the future of finance. Recognizing this reality and planning for it early will allow you to survive and thrive in an increasingly tumultuous global industry.
Singularity University and CNBC’s Exponential Finance Summit was created to bring the financial and tech industries together in a deliberate and meaningful way. Think Wall Street meets Silicon Valley. Now in 2016, Exponential Finance is the definitive place to learn, connect, collaborate and reinvent the financial industry on an annual basis.
Exponential Finance 2016 will be held June 7 and 8 in New York City, featuring world-renowned leaders sharing their insights into how exponential technologies are affecting the financial industry and what you can do to be a part of it. CNBC’s Bob Pisani and SU’s Salim Ismail will emcee, while speakers will include heavy hitters like Bank of America COO/CTO Catherine P. Bessant, GE Chief Economist Marco Annunziata, Abra Founder and CEO Bill Barhydt, GoldBean Founder and CEO Jane Barratt, and many others.
As Ismail wrote in his book Exponential Organizations, “Today, if you’re not disrupting yourself, someone else is; your fate is to be either the disrupter or the disrupted. There is no middle ground.”
Exponential Finance aims to give participants an interactive and collaborative experience and send them home with an understanding of what the future will look like and how to act on it now. Participants will have the opportunity to see demos from more than 40 groundbreaking technology companies and connect with business leaders from leading firms across the industry.
In short, missing Exponential Finance would mean falling behind.
