This is a professional networking group primarily for financial technology industries. We bring together wall street bankers, blockchain companies, wealth management, banking and capital markets, and insurance to tackle the biggest issues facing the financial services industry. With professionals across tax, assurance, and advisory practices, we can work together ways to thrive even in a period of uncertainty. Whether you're preparing for regulatory changes, putting FinTech/InsurTech to work, rethinking your human capital strategy or building business application of blockchain technologies.
For years, or even decades, companies pursued the same old business models (usually selling goods or services, building and renting assets and land, and offering people’s time as services) and tried to execute better than their competitors did. But now, business model disruption is changing the very nature of economic returns and industry definitions. All industries are seeing rapid displacement, disruption, and, in extreme cases, outright destruction. The financial services industry, with its large commercial and investment banks and money managers, is no exception.
WHO SHOULD JOIN Entrepreneurs, investors, evangelists, enthusiasts, researchers, coders and other members of the digital ecosystem specifically interested in a practical, business application of blockchain technologies. The basic rules of the game for creating and capturing economic value were once fixed in place.
STRATEGIC VISION Blockchain is a comprehensive technology that has the tremendous potential and power to disrupt most industries over the coming years and change radically our perception and roles that business, state, government, economic development and science play in human life.
Decentralization and P2P (peer-to-peer) governance systems can help define a new path for the progress of humanity. The time for the big change in this world has come and it needs input from as many community members as possible.
You are welcome to join the group and feel free to invite your friends, colleagues and acquaintances.
