Punctuated by new partnerships and exciting events in different regions, 2016 has been great year for Innotribe which pivoted the Startup Challenge to support emerging FinTech ecosystems and introduced a brand new initiative in the Innotribe toolbox: the Industry Challenges.
Amongst industry recognition by Institutional Investor, Financial News and the 2016 Canadian FinTech Awards, the Innotribe team was also thrilled to support the launch of the Global FinTech Hub Federation, a network of emerging as well as established FinTech hubs, in partnership with Innovate Finance.
Sustaining its support to collaborative research with proven FinTech enterprises, academics and top industry experts, Innotribe contributed to the development of two cutting-edge papers: ‘Patterns of Disruption: Impact on wholesale banking’ by the Deloitte Centre for the Edge, and ‘From Business Modeling to Platform Design’, produced by the Platform Design Toolkit team. The Innotribe Magazine, launched at Sibos in Geneva, was another collection of opinion pieces from some of Innotribe’s expert speakers on the latest FinTech trends.
From the side-lines to the main exhibition floor, from isolated sessions to a plenary debate, Innotribe truly made its mark at Sibos over the last few years. The 2016 conference was another success for the FinTech sector as the entire event was dominated by technology discussions to an extent we have never seen before. It is very inspiring for the four-day programme we are building for Sibos 2017, taking place from 16-17 October in Toronto, Canada.
The team is immensely grateful to the dedicated community of FinTech innovators and experts with whom we continue to work closely and is already looking forward to the opportunities 2017 will offer to Innotribe and the FinTech community. Discover our full programme here.
