Innovate before Finovate Spring

Bank Innovators Lab Day Before Finovate Spring

Put the latest technology into context and dive deeper into innovation in a safe, curated environment. No demos or sales pitches here, just an immersive, hands-on workshop helping you bridge the gap between the real problems faced by bankers and the solutions and innovations entrepreneurs are creating to address them.

Join us in San Jose, CA on May 11th for a hands-on, interactive dive into these topics with your peers:

How Can We Collaborate Better?
  • How can we engage customers who are increasingly multi-dimensional and multi-channel?
  • How can we break down silos to be more effective internally?
  • How can we best collaborate with startups and vendors?
The Risk of Being Risk-Adverse
  • What risks are associated with new innovations and new vendors?
  • How should we view that compared to the risk of losing to more nimble competitors?
  • What is the risk of not taking risk?
The Changing Landscape of Banking
  • How non-bank competitors are redefining what’s possible and reshaping customer expectations.
  • A look at novel approaches by some of the world’s most innovative companies.
  • What ideas will be presented at Finovate Spring 2015?


Here’s what last year’s event looked like:
