Finextra and Level39, in association with Innotribe, are to host a two-day conference exploring the new wave of innovation sweeping across the financial services sector.
Finextra Future Money will take place at Level39 in Canary Wharf on 30 April and 1 May. The event will bring together banks, government agencies, public policy makers, VCs and start-ups to debate the future of banking and the influence of the digital lifestyle on financial services.
As part of Finextra Future Money, Innotribe, Swift's initiative to enable collaborative innovation in financial services, will select an elite group of start-ups and growth stage innovators to showcase their businesses to this high calibre audience. Three start-ups and two growth-stage companies will be selected as finalists, to present to the world's most influential financial institutions at Sibos, Swift's annual conference, taking place in September 2014 in Boston.
Nektarios Liolios, innovation leader of Innotribe, says: "We like to attract as big an audience as possible that is relevant for our mission. (To do this) we need to partner with the right people. It has to be a reputable company. It has to be someone who knows what we are are talking about. Finextra is the publication that understands innovation, and looks at the financial services sector very broadly, and therefore it is a natural fit for us."
