Emerging Technologies SIG (Zenith) Proposal Meeting on 3/29

Without further ado, I am happy to announce, that based on the proceedings on top of the Why focus on Emerging Technologies in Financial companies post, and thanks to FINOS management, namely Gabriele Columbro (Executive Director of FINOS) and Maurizio Pillitu (CTO at FINOS), we are ready to have a ‘proposal’ kickoff meeting for the Emerging Technologies SIG. It will provide a forum for FINOS members and the wider fintech community to discuss, collaborate on, and develop new and innovative solutions that can help drive the financial industry forward.

The SIG, if approved, would host regular meetings, events, webinars, workshops and other activities to help members stay up-to-date with the latest trends and developments in emerging technologies. We do encourage all FINOS members who are interested in emerging technologies to join our kickoff session below and become part of this exciting new community. Together, we can help to drive innovation and advance the fintech industry in fresh and exciting ways!
