We are pleased to announce our Bank Innovators Lab Day in London on February 13, immediately following FinovateEurope, held at Level39, Europe’s largest accelerator space for finance, retail and future cities technology companies. We are also pleased to announce that the Lab Day will be facilitated by Innotribe co-founder Mariela Atanassova.
Our Lab Day will help bank innovators digest, discuss, and dive deeper into the themes and concepts from FinovateEurope, and beyond, and having the experience and knowledge of someone like Mariela in this amazing accelerator space will provide bank innovators with the insight, resources, and partners they need to innovate and implement new ideas.
Our research has shown that there are several degrees of separation between the problems faced by bankers and the prototypes that excite entrepreneurs. This is the gap our Bank Innovators Lab Day will seek to bridge, creating a process for an effective dialogue between the business and the technology experts to articulate, understand, and scope the industry problems and explore how technologies– including those presented at FinovateEurope, could be put to use to solve them.
“Contrary to popular belief in the FinTech world, everything cannot be solved by an app– that’s why I am thrilled to be facilitating the BIC Innovators Lab Day. This will be a real lab, where we will scope, design, prototype, test, validate, and start over again, to create better solutions.”
Mariela Atanassova, Co-Founder of Innotribe
We are also proud to partner with Finovate, and BIC members can receive a 20% discount off of their FinovateEurope registration fee by using the discount code BIC20, which will offset the registration fee for our Bank Innovators Lab Day.
