The First Annual Toronto FinTech Conference
October 20, 2017
- October 21, 2017
The inaugural Annual Toronto FinTech Conference is an annual event where scholars in the fields of strategy, entrepreneurship, innovation, organization theory, finance, and economics can discuss their research on the rise, diffusion, and disruptive potential of financial technologies (“FinTech”). Academics will have the opportunity to interact with leaders from financial institutions, FinTech startups, and policymakers working in this fast-moving and dynamic field.
Financial technologies such as digital currencies, blockchain, marketplace/P2P lending, equity crowdfunding, robo-advisors, Big Data, and the Internet of Things are rapidly reshaping the economy by promoting decentralization, disintermediation, and digitization. These emerging technologies are disrupting the financial sector as well as other industries, and are described by some as a new industrial revolution. Now it is time for scholars to address these trends with rigorous research.
