Finovate West Digital is on.

Finovate West Digital is on. Taking the place of Finovate Spring 2020, the event, set for Nov. 23–25, 2020, retains all the promise of its vernal antecedent. Although it is now a completely virtual affair, the conference maintains its merit as a platform to provide a rewarding combination of education, information and networking.

Event organizers are gearing up to welcome over 1,100 senior executives from the banking and financial services sector, as well as founders and managers of fintech start-ups. More than 120 leading figures from various fields associated with digital financial technologies will share their expertise and experience. And over 30 tech firms will display a diversity of technologies that are reshaping the frontiers of finance. For those who want to see how the start-up ecosystem is responding to the pandemic, Finovate West Digital is an essential engagement that shouldn’t be missed.

The conference agenda is structured around five themes — banking, payments, SMB financing and community banking, future tech and lending — and formatted to provide a brisk flow of sessions, each lasting 10 to 15 minutes. Fast-paced demos, oral presentations and networking breaks that include live one-to-one chats will also be included, a format that is sure to excite attendees and maintain high energy levels.

Presentations on the first day include “What’s Hot and What’s Not in Fintech: How Are We Seeing the Impact of COVID-19 Taking Hold” by Jacob Jegher, president of Javelin Strategy & Research; “The 7 Steps to Using Machine Learning to Improve Your Business” by Jeff Fried, a director of product management at InterSystems; and “Harnessing the Cloud to Create More Efficiencies for SMBs in the New Normal” by Tyler McIntyre, founder and CTO of Novo.

Other speakers will include Raif Barbaros, Eytan Bensoussan, Jeff Berezny and Colin Boone. Barbaros, currently CTO of BFS Capital, is a serial entrepreneur who has worked with several venture-backed start-ups, leading to two successful acquisitions and three platforms that scaled to reach millions of users. Most recently, he founded an AI start-up that uses machine learning to predict customer churn in SaaS companies.

Bensoussan, formerly a senior engagement manager at McKinsey, is the founder of NorthOne, which provides FDIC-insured bank accounts for small businesses. Berezny is a senior vice president at Trov, a provider of digital insurance solutions. Boone is vice president of digital experience at Royal Credit Union, a Wisconsin-based financial co-operative.

Finovate conferences showcase cutting-edge banking and financial technologies through a unique blend of short-form demos and instructive addresses from thought leaders. There is no better way than attending this event to discover and understand how digital technologies are refashioning — and disrupting — the banking and financial services industries.
