HACKING FINANCE @ Next Bank Europe is a business innovation workshop where we will co-create with the audience new value propositions that can transform the world of finance, that are based on networked business models. P2P or crowd-sourced products and services are emerging and disrupting conventional business across industries. These products and services work through networked business models, where value is delivered by consumers to consumers and companies become enablers of this value exchange.

With the unique diverse audience of Next Bank Europe, that brings together corporates and entrepreneurs, we will explore the implications of these emerging models for financial services, which is an industry long ripe for disruptive innovation. For more information click here.
