Kindly note that some parts of the Club may be reserved exclusively to their members.

- Fintech [Hot Topic] Zero to 1M Customers
Hi Rebels, Gartner’s Hype Cycle for Digital Banking Transformation 2017 agrees with this finding. Most segments in FinTech have already made it past the hype phase (e.g., robo-advisor 2.0 and social messaging app wallets), with some technologies now entering mainstream adoption (e.g., wearable banking apps and mobile wireless payments). Still, in a nascent vertical like FinTech, companies face some very unique set of challenges when it comes to marketing their newfangled products. The main obstacle is getting target users to trust what could potentially be unfamiliar tools to help them handle their financial transactions. Even if FinTech products’ main selling point is to simplify and streamline finance, many of the technologies that power FinTech products can appear complex and opaque to most users. Privacy and security concerns, as well as vague terms on fees, charges, and rates, can put off potential customers. https://bit.ly/2xjRt3m A big thank you to Baker Botts for hosting the event.

- 4TH GROWTH TECH EVENING [Hot Topic] LEGAL TECH
Hi Rebels, The Growth Tech Evenings are an opportunity for leading figures to discuss and debate, in a confidential manner, their views, expectations, issues or concerns for IT companies in the near-term. The fourth in this series will be focused on Legal Tech. “Legal Tech is hot in the U.S. It's helping to transform a huge, staid industry. It's also a global phenomenon. China is jumping in with both feet-- as are others from Jerusalem to San Paulo” (forbes.com). THE DEBATE The discussions will largely be driven from an IT perspective, led by three business leaders at the vanguard of the Legal Tech revolution. The digital management of contracts, collaboration with third parties, the use of AI, confidentiality, outsourcing and the impact on legal culture and education are just some of the key issues. The evening will provide an opportunity to hear the experiences of those involved, identify the key drivers which they believe will affect the growth of Legal Tech and to discuss the opportunities and issues this presents for the global legal marketplace. The guest speakers will start the evening by providing context to the topic and giving their views on the opportunities and challenges. There will then follow an interactive debate which we expect to last around an hour. Wine and soft drinks will be provided. GUEST SPEAKERS STEPHANIE LISTON Stephanie Liston is recognised as being a leading advisor on telecommunications law and regulation, coming from a rare combination of a technology and legal background. She has served on the board of the UK telecoms regulator, OFCOM, and is currently a member of BT’s Equality of Access Board (ensuring fair access to its Openreach broadband network).

- Could GovTech become bigger then Fintech?
Hi Rebels, We are looking forward to some top spec speakers & some lively debate. GovTech is gaining momentum as it is passing from an emergent state and is poised to go global, it could be in a similar position to FinTech 5 years ago, according to a report GovTech: an Emergent Sector Revolutionising Public Services. Global government spending on technology is one of the largest ICT segments and is estimated to be a market worth at least $450 billion, with the US worth over $100 billion. https://digit.fyi/govtech-bigger-fintech VR and AR can also be an effective tool for introducing residents to their full stack of infrastructure – from building to gas-line levels. VR can be particularly useful for training employees in dangerous jobs or governance and day to day efficiency studies. For cities and towns, this could include occupations firemen, police, and maintenance personnel. Cost Savings, Risks, Complex Data Sets, Visualisation and Dangerous situations can all be disrupted by using VR and AR.

- Secret Silicon Drink About
Please RSVP here: https://silicondrinkabout.com/london If a TL;DR* could suffice it would read like this... Michael Acton Smith (Mind Candy) started Silicon Drinkabout as an informal get-together of friends. When it outgrew the time he had available to spend on it, the 3beards took over. Visitors from other cities attended the Friday night event and suggested setting up similar gatherings for their local communities, under the same name. The community waxed and waned and waxed once more, fueled by love and frustration, by commitment and creativity, by luck, by limitations and by yet more love. 3beards ceased operations in pursuit of other Unicorns yet Silicon Drinkabout continues to flourish in the hands of a growing global community and supportive guidance of a global community manager.
