How to Unbundle and Disrupt an Industry While Scaling Fast - Lessons from FinTech

  • Wharton San Francisco 2 Harrison Street San Francisco, CA, 94105 United States (map)

This panel will explore the macro trends and disruptions impacting the financial sector and the lessons that can be applied to other industries. Big banks and brokerage firms are increasingly under attack from emerging FinTech startups. Rather than taking the industry head-on, creative entrepreneurs are selecting niches and beginning to dismantle the industry through a thousand cuts. Entrepreneurial opportunities are plenty but entrepreneurs need to be able to identify patterns within specific verticals, adopt disruptive business models, and understand how to scale fast to win in this hyper-competitive and heavily regulated industry. Panel Organized and Moderated by: Raj Bharti, Global Marketing and Product Management Leader,  Microsoft
