TGV 36th Disruption in Financial Services – New York (10 July 2019)
True Global Ventures has held 35 highly praised Disruption in Financial Services events in San Francisco, New York, Singapore, Beijing, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Mumbai, Tokyo, Zurich, Stockholm, London, Paris and Berlin. We are stringing together Blockchain trends and what Financial Institutions in the future might look like while bringing the industry together.
We do not allow any of our events to become PR & Marketing event, as media and journalists are not allowed, and Chatham rules apply. Beyond Fintech and Payments, we are also aggressively challenging the ongoing hype around Blockchain. We dig into real user cases of Blockchain applications to solve real problems and define what should go into production or Blockchain technology.
Our goal is to foster an engaging discussion with top industry leaders (corporates, investors, entrepreneurs) in FinTech & Blockchain:
