Since its successful debut at Sibos Hong Kong in 2009, Innotribe has evolved from an experimental Sibos feature to a pioneering innovation initiative.
For its seventh year at Sibos, Innotribe moves centre stage! This translates into two components: first, some our most successful sessions go main stage: the Future of Money session and the Startup Challenge Finale. Second, we have an awesome innovation hub on the exhibition floor, located next to the SWIFT stand.
Throughout the week, we will introduce the latest innovation trends, whilst delivering thought-provoking content designed to challenge perceptions. Together with global professionals from across the field of innovation, we will explore topics at the centre of the financial services industry agenda in payments, market infrastructures, and the corporate landscape.
In a play of words on Kevin Kelly’s book “What Technology Wants”, we have designed our sessions around four major themes this year:
Monday 12 October: What Platforms Want
Tuesday 13 October: What Society Wants
Wednesday 14 October: What Innovation Wants
Thursday 15 October: What Machine Intelligence Wants
We put a lot of efforts in ensuring diversity across the different thought leaders joining us throughout the week: men, women, millennials, investors, accelerators and contrarians – creating the right mix of topics and speakers in every session, and an interactive environment for our audience.
We recently interviewed Peter Vander Auwera, the architect and content creator of Innotribe @ Sibos to give you an overview of this year’s programme. Peter is shaping everything from the speaker agenda and panel topics to the facilitation, lighting and music that set the tone for the event. Read the full story on sibos.com
Next to this, the Finale of this year’s Innotribe Startup Challenge will see the 12 early-stage finalists selected during the regional showcases in London, Cape Town, Singapore and New York pitching their pioneering products and services to Sibos delegates who will vote for this year’s winner. The 8 growth-stage finalists and some Alumni will host exhibition booths on the Innotribe stand, for networking and live product demos.
