For our first cross-meetup event, we'll have the great pleasure to welcome Norbert Gehrke, founder of the Tokyo FinTech Meetup. "FinTech" has been one of the major buzz words of 2017 and Norbert will discuss the latest trends in the FinTech ecosystems in the US, China and Japan, review select case studies of incumbents taking up the FinTech challenge, and prime examples of innovation in Banking, Insurance and Payments. Yes, blockchain will be part of the discussion :)
ApéroTalk is our events series based on a very simple (and very French) concept: Apéro and Talk.
• 7:00 pm - Door opens
• 7:30 pm - Talk and Q&A by Norbert
• 8:30 pm - Networking session
