Innotribe at Sibos 2010 in Amsterdam was such a success that we decided to start running stand-alone Innotribe events. The first event in its kind is Innotribe Mumbai on 1-2 June 2011. It’s not an or/or story. We keep on organizing Innotribe at Sibos.
At Sibos this year, we will have 3 technology inspired topics: Big Data, Digital Identity and Social. We will also have 3 non-technology inspired topics: Corporate Culture, Where does the investment money go for innovation, and New Capitalism.
Some of the Innotribe themes of 2010 will go mainstream at Sibos Toronto: Cloud computing and Mobile are two excellent examples. Other new topics will be introduced: they have the potential to go mainstream in 2012 or 2013.
As you can see, the stand-alone Innotribe events are part of our build-up towards Sibos Toronto.
What we try to do at those stand-alone events ànd Sibos is 3-fold:
- Extend the type of audience for our events: more innovators, movers and shakers and local entrepreneurs
- Extend the type of content. Mobile, big data, social, digital identity. Not necessarily that SWIFT wants always to play an active role in these, but to create an active and collaborative conversation with the financial industry on these topics
- Extend the brand of SWIFT into a brand that relates to innovation
SWIFT is therefore pleased to invite you to attend Innotribe Mumbai, a two-day event that will bring together a powerful combination of people from banks, carriers and mobile device, platform and service providers – as well as local and international entrepreneurs – to explore the ways in which mobile technology are enabling greater financial inclusion. What will the financial and telecoms industries look like in the future, and what can you do to help shape them?
Innotribe events are built around an energising mix of education, new perspectives, collaboration and facilitation. Innotribe Mumbai participants will be able to learn from each others’ opinions, ideas and business models. Also expect exposure to longer-term perspectives through discussions about the future of money and the dramatic business model shifts market participants will likely undergo as that future becomes a reality.
Mark the date in your calendar and follow us on Twitter. We just published a very tentative program for this event, and registration will formally open on 21 March 2011.
Hope to see many of you there.
May the Innotribe vibe be with you.
