Since this will be our first meetup, let's plan to keep an open forum format over pizza and refreshments at the ThoughtWorks office.
Let's discuss: WHAT IS REGTECH? As a nascent community and a term that's gaining a lot of mindshare, there's also a lot of competition to "own" the term. Let's discuss it as a community!
WANTED: two to three volunteers to help lead the conversation: WHAT IS REGTECH?
FORMAT: this will be an open discussion, but we have a few people lined up to be informal "panelists" to lead the discussion:
• thought leader from ThoughtWorks
• a RegTech software company
• journalist and digital strategist on blockchain and smart contracts
• possible a venture capitalist in the space
7:00 - 7:30 - Networking and reception
7:30 - 8:00 - Welcome
• Welcome message to the group
• Introduction to the organizers, panelists, and community volunteers;
• Community update and reading list
8:00 - 9:30 - Roundtable discussion (panel + community) - What is RegTech?
9:30 - Post-session conversation, possibly at a nearby bar or restaurant
BIG thanks to ThoughtWorks and co-organizer Prashant for volunteering to host us!
