The Bank Innovators Council Road Show held its penultimate stop of its U.S. East Coast leg in our Nation’s Capital on Thursday, September 11. The area is home to one of the most innovative banks in the world, Capital One. One look at Capital One Labs and their Developer Center shows how they are one of the banks setting the standard for Financial Innovation.
Washington DC is also home to many national organizations that are assisting banks as we move into this new era, including the Independent Community Bankers of America and the Consumer Bankers Association. We would especially like to note the American Bankers Association, which took part in our DC workshop and has opened a dialogue with us about how we can collaborate to promote and support more innovation in banking. Stay tuned for more.
We also received some great press coverage in the Washington Business Journal from Staff Report Mark Holan, who participated in our open session and filed this report: Bank Innovators Council roadshow rolls into D.C. with tales of digital disruption, which includes a video interview with BIC co-founder JP Nicols.
