Event Details

Before you start your week at Money 20/20 and the Copenhagen Fintech Week, join us at the Rainmaking Loft for an afternoon of presentations, workshops and discussions about shaping the future of FinTech – for everyone.

A phrase often repeated, ad nauseam, at conferences around the world, is that ‘AirBnB is a hotel company, without any hotels; Uber is a taxi company without any cabs’. The meaning being that the future of innovation and products, isn’t ‘product ownership’, but platforms. It is a lovely idea. The idea that ‘technology’ will overcome any fuzzy, difficult issues around people and culture and products – and the truly innovative companies are ones that are agile and flexible and depend on technology to harness that change.

However, humanity has a habit of rearing its head. Ask Uber. A raft of bad press this winter did not arise from issues with its app. A video of Uber’s CEO arguing over fees with an Uber driver, came hot the heels of an explosive blog shedding light on what it was like to be a female employee at the company.

How could Uber, or any buzzy tech company, avoid this reputational damage? Can the answer be to include ‘humanity’ in your business model at the start? Should the future of FinTech be built on a platform – or should it be built for everyone? Join us as we debate and work though this issue at a special afternoon prior to Money 20/20.
