Finovate Debuts: SuiteBox Introduces Virtual Meeting Rooms for Financial Professionals

SuiteBox_homepage_Mar2016

SuiteBox provides professionals in financial services and other fields with the kind of multi-channel, interactive experience we’ve always wanted from the internet. With just a smartphone, tablet, or laptop, professionals can build and manage secure, virtual meeting rooms and use these private, virtual spaces for conference calls, document collaboration, screen sharing, embedded web forms, e-signatures and more. Everything in the session can be recorded in full or in part for future reference. The technology is available as both a standalone solution or via a fully integrated white-label API.

“SuiteBox does everything that you can do in a physical meeting and more,” said Ian Dunbar, country manager for SuiteBox Australia.

Company facts:

  • Founded in March 2013
  • Headquartered in Auckland, New Zealand
  • Richard Mannell is CEO

SuiteBox_stage_FEU2016

SuiteBox Australia Country Manager Ian Dunbar demonstrated his company’s technology at FinovateEurope 2016 in London.

In his demonstration at FinovateEurope, Dunbar and his team showed a fully white-labeled virtual meeting space. He demonstrated a sample insurance transaction showing off the platform’s mutually accessible web forms, video conferencing, session recording, and e-signatures. “Importantly,” Dunbar added, “this virtual meeting room is now open and available to be used at any time. They can come back in. They can have a meeting. They could drop documents off for each other to have a look at. They could even leave a video message or a chat message.”

“Effectively that gives you a meeting space that can be used on an ongoing basis,” Dunbar explained. “You don’t have to be back actually having a physical meeting.”

SuiteBox_Ian_Dunbar2We spoke with Ian Dunbar (circle photo), country manager, Australia, during rehearsal day at FinovateEurope. We followed up with a few questions about SuiteBox and how entrepreneurs and businesses can take advantage of the technology.

Finovate: What problem does SuiteBox solve?

Ian Dunbar: SuiteBox is solving one of the biggest challenges of professional services globally. How do you maintain and grow your client relationships, manage and close business and increase efficiency and profitability into your business. All when we are faced with time-poor clients, congested cities, and the need manage paper, post, scanning and signing of documents.

SuiteBox solves all of this by delivering everything you can do in a physical meeting and more, including video meetings, document sharing and collaboration, electronic signing and selective recording.

This is all delivered through the SuiteBox MeetingSpace, a secure private collaboration space that remains permanently open and accessible throughout the relationship life of the professional and their client.

Finovate: Who are your primary customers?

Dunbar: Financial advisers, insurance providers, banks, mortgage brokers, stock brokers, educators; legal, pension fund, and real estate professionals.

Finovate: How does SuiteBox solve the problem better?

Dunbar: SuiteBox is the only tool globally that combines all the tools to close business and get the job done. SuiteBox eliminates the need to juggle video tools, e-signature tools and emails. SuiteBox is also the only tool that delivers a permanently open MeetingSpace, that allows the participants to enter and leave the space at their convenience, share and transact documents, and only meet via video when needed.

Finovate: Tell us about your favorite implementation of SuiteBox.

Dunbar: SuiteBox has launched a highly integrated solution with Midwinter Financial Services’s AdviceOS adviser desktop in Australia. In this implementation, the Adviser has a seamless experience that allows:

  • the Adviser to schedule virtual meetings and launch SuiteBox from the AdviceOS desktop
  • the Adviser to white label SuiteBox to their own branded MeetingSpace
  • documents to be sourced from AdviceOS and saved directly back to the client record in AdviceOS
  • video records to be stored for future reference, and be easily accessible from the client record within AdviceOS.

Finovate: What in your background gave you the confidence to tackle this challenge?

Dunbar: SuiteBox’s founder and creative director is a world leader in data visualization and founder of several successful interactive media businesses including Terabyte Interactive, now recognized as the oldest multimedia company in the world.

Craig is expert at developing technology strategies to address opportunities. He pioneered the first online real-time 3D graphics for the America’s Cup as co-founder of Virtual Spectator. More recently, Craig established Futuretech that gave rise to One Room, the World’s leading funeral-streaming service.

SuiteBox_image2

Finovate: What are some upcoming initiatives from your company that we can look forward to over the next few months?

Dunbar: We will be integrating with a number of CRM systems, Advice Platforms and Wealth Platforms globally.

We will also be releasing enhancements to the secure MeetingSpace, that will allow participants to utilize the space completely autonomously of being in a meeting. Such as allowing a party to drop off a document, leave a video or chat message, and manage business at any time convenient to them.

Finovate: Where do you see your company a year or two from now?

Dunbar: SuiteBox has recently expanded into the South African market, opening an office in Johannesburg. Throughout 2016, we will expand into the United Kingdom, Europe and North America.

International Women’s Day: Celebrating Females in Fintech

WomenOfFintech

One question I’m always asked during a Finovate networking session is, “Why don’t you put more women on stage?” My answer: we don’t dictate the gender of the company’s presenter. We leave that decision up to the company.

This post is to celebrate the fintech industry’s growth of female inclusion. At the first Finovate conference in 2007, there were zero women on stage. Last month, at FinovateEurope 2016, 20% of the companies featured a woman on stage (party on!). Here’s a look at the ladies of FinovateEurope 2016:

AdviceRobo’s CCO Rosali Steenkamer

AdviceRobo

 

BankersLab’s Co-founder and CEO Michelle Katics

BankersLab

CREALOGIX’s Geraldine Critchley, head of digital marketing

ebankIT’s Diana Winstanley, business development

eBankIT

Envestnet’s SVP Molly Pandya, product management

Ethoca’s Helene Ladjadj, senior manager, issuer relations, EMEA

Ethoca

EyeVerify’s Director of Marketing Tinna Hung

EyeVerify

IT Sector’s Inês Domingues, market manager

ITSector

Livian Technologies’s Raquel Oliveira, head of product

LivianTech

myInvenio’s Modesta Jonauskyte, sales and marketing assistant

MyInvenio

Outshared’s Director Irene van den Brink

SBDA Group’s Anna Laskovaya, project manager

SBDAGroup

Spiff’s CMO Kristin Moller

Spiff

While not all of these women are CEOs of their company, each plays a role in removing women from the “endangered species list” of fintech.

While we still have a long way to go, we can all be encouraged by the movement that has already taken place and the global initiatives that have sparked growth. The FemTech Leaders MeetUp, organized by Ghela Boskovich and Michelle Moffatt, has held three successful events this year (I attended the London meetup last month, and the attendance was impressive).

If you’re interested in attending a FemTech leaders event (men are also invited to attend), check out the upcoming meetup in Sydney or RSVP for the meetup in New York after the first day of FinDEVr New York on March 29. It’s less than a 10-minute walk from the venue.

This post wouldn’t be complete without a shoutout to the ladies of Finovate and FinDEVr; the women who help make our events happen (editor’s note: And of course, Julie Schicktanz, the author of this post):

  • Leah Baldwin
  • Dom Marczak
  • Emily Olyarchuk
  • Erika Sanchez
  • Kate Schultz
  • Kate Stolte
  • Heather Stowell
  • Paula Wrzecionowska

Finovate Debuts: Designed for Women, Spiff Introduces its Social Savings Service

Spiff_homepage_Feb2016

Spiff is a straightforward concept: a “simple and fun” savings service designed with women in mind. Founder and CEO Carl Wessmann credits the women in his life for helping him understand the importance of savings, and he’s returned the favor with a new technology that, as he explains it, “helps connect money with what it can accomplish” for users and their loved ones.

Spiff is poised to take advantage of the disconnect between the rising economic power of women and the fact that women are still a disproportionately small portion of the world’s savers and investors.

Spiff_stage_FEU2016

Spiff CMO Kristin Juland Møller and CEO Carl Wessmann demonstrated their technology at FinovateEurope 2016 in London.

“Our key demographic, women between 25 and 35, play an essential part in our mission to reduce wealth inequality,” said Spiff CMO Kristin Juland Møller. Noting that 1 in 4 millennial women are “already parents,” she pointed out that “by providing them with inspiration and savings tools they need, we will not only empower millions with good saving habits, but also empower future generations as they pass on their saving habits to their children.”

Spiff_image_0In Spiff’s Finovate debut, Møller showed three of Spiff’s key features:

  • Setting up a savings plan for oneself
  • Setting up a savings plan for a dependent
  • Sharing that savings plan with a relative, such as an aunt or grandparent

Møller presented the Spiff Dashboard, where she was able to choose between different types of savings plans (options included themes such as “Your Future,” “Your Kids,” and “Rainy Day”). The Savings Plan can be personalized with an image, as well as a description of the specific savings goal for the plan.

The user then chooses the amount of monthly savings to be automatically drawn from a connected account and set aside into either a savings account or a pre-selected investment fund. Choose a day of the month for the transaction and, after confirming the information, the savings plan is set.

“Saving is a family affair,” Møller said, showing next how a child’s savings plan built with Spiff could easily be shared with grandparents or other relatives via social media. “It’s something parents do for their kids, and grandparents do for their grandkids,” she said.

The stats

  • Founded in January 2015
  • Headquartered in Oslo, Norway
  • Carl Wessmann is CEO and founder
  • Raised $500,000 from investors in five countries

Spiff_Kristin_MollerHow it works

We sat down for a quick conversation with Møller during rehearsal day at FinovateEurope, and followed up with a few questions about Spiff, its focus on helping empower women financially, and what to look forward to from the company in 2016.

Finovate: What problem does Spiff solve?

Kristin Juland Møller: Spiff is a saving service, designed with women in mind. We want to empower women with smarter finance tools for saving, so we created a simple, social and fun savings app. Spiff connects money to what it can accomplish, for you and your loved ones. In simple, straightforward language. 

Finovate: Who are your primary customers?

Møller: Women 25-35.

Spiff-PR-Dashboard-iPhoneFinovate: How does Spiff solve the problem better?

Møller: You need to build products that people love, not products that will only make you more profit. That means that you need to design products for key demographics, and we choose to focus on a key demographic that has been widely neglected from banks for the past hundred years. It’s time we shake it up. 

Finovate: Tell us about your favorite implementation of Spiff.

Møller: Saving is a family affair. Grandparents save for their grandkids, parents for their kids, friends save for trips together, and young couples save for their first home. Spiff is a social savings app that allows you to share saving plans, give savings as a gift, and reinvent the charm of saving together. We cheer you on, and celebrate when you reach your goals!

Finovate: What in your background gave you the confidence to tackle this challenge? 

Møller: Our founders are strongly influenced by Nordic values, equality, and the universal notion that women and men are worth the same. Our one founder Calle has written a Facebook Note on why this is important in his life. Keyword: Women https://www.facebook.com/notes/carl-nicolai-wessmann/the-women-of-my-life/10153213470391190

Strong and independent women around us have taught us the value of kindness, fairness and empathy—and the importance of saving. Spiff is built on these values. 

Finovate: What are some upcoming initiatives from Spiff that we can look forward to over the next few months?

Møller: Testing has begun. And the early signs are that people love it. We are launching in Norway this year. Expansion will follow. We welcome everyone to join the Spiffy waitlist (www.getspiff.no), and be one of the first to try Spiff. We will also be part of one of the world’s best accelerators, TINC, in Silicon Valley.

Finovate: Where do you see Spiff a year or two from now?  

Møller: We will have empowered one million women with smarter savings.

Finovate Debuts: Ledger’s Blue Smartcard Mitigates Phishing, Malware Attacks

LedgerHomepage

Bitcoin is inherently difficult to protect and is not guarded from fraud, as many traditional accounts are. To navigate this issue, Ledger has designed hardware to help users preserve ownership of their digital blockchain assets.

The company began as the House of Bitcoin, a physical retail location in Paris where people exchange digital currency in person, learn about bitcoin, and share ideas with other startups (see below). Ledger was born from a merger of three different companies which had gathered at the space to collaborate.

The company’s flagship hardware product Ledger Nano helps individuals protect their bitcoins and make payments safely.

LaMaisonDuBitcoin

At FinovateEurope 2016, the company launched the Ledger Blue Smartcard (pictured below), an enterprise solution featuring a touch screen to serve as a second factor to validate transaction information before completing a settlement on the blockchain. The device mitigates phishing and malware attacks, which can occur due to inherently insecure computers, smartphones, or human negligence. ledger-blue

Ledger CEO and founder Eric Larchevêque says, “It is a hardware wallet, but we prefer to call it a personal security device because it can do a lot.” The device not only serves as a second factor for bitcoin transactions and interbank settlements, but also secures the movement of any assets held on the blockchain, including P2P stock trading, workflow certification for insurance management, and even process documentation for pharmaceutical clinical trials.

“It’s not about currency,” Larchevêque emphasizes, “but about what you can do with the blockchain.”

LedgerVidIMG

CEO Eric Larchevêque demoed Ledger Blue at FinovateEurope 2016 in London.

Ledger Blue facts:

  • Employees: 16
  • Funding: €2.5M seed round in 2015
  • 10,000 units sold of first device, Ledger Nano
  • Customers across 100 countries
  • HQ: Paris, France
  • Founded: January 2015

EricLarchevêqueProfileIMGEric Larchevêque demonstrated Ledger’s Blue Smartcard on stage at FinovateEurope in London (above). Larchevêque studied as an engineer of macro electronics at the ESIEE Paris, a French graduate school of engineering. Since 1996 he has been an entrepreneur and has founded, sold, and crashed about a dozen companies.

Finovate: What problem does Ledger solve?
Larchevêque: Ledger secures the last meter of the enterprise infrastructure by designing a new generation of hardware security devices enforcing strong authentication, data integrity and compliance. Use cases range from critical workflow security to trusted hardware for blockchain-based applications.

Finovate: Who are your primary customers?
Larchevêque: Enterprises, banks, fintechs, insurers, asset managers, blockchain startups … Any company requiring a high level of compliance and security in their process. We are present on the European and North American market.

Finovate: How does Ledger solve the problem better?
Larchevêque: Ledger has a strong expertise in embedded hardware security and built its reputation on the blockchain market by designing a popular security solution sold in more than 100 countries.

Finovate: Tell us about your favorite implementation of your solution.
Larchevêque: In compliance, necessity of proof lies with the company under scrutiny. Ledger designed a blockchain-based immutable audit trail giving full traceability of any process. Each step is permanently recorded in the blockchain through the signature of personal, secure hardware keys. As the audit trail is fully enforced through a decentralized system, this solution brings the highest possible trust level and prevents any possibility of tampering.

Finovate: What in your background gave you the confidence to tackle this challenge?
Larchevêque: Ledger’s core engineers come from highly regarded hardware and security companies such as Oberthur, Gemalto or STMicroelectronics. Ledger is a full-stack company, with a rare expertise on secure elements (smart cards), and developed its own secure embedded operating system.

Finovate: What are some upcoming initiatives from Ledger that we can look forward to over the next few months?
Larchevêque: Ledger will soon release a suite of FIDO-certified hardware dongles for strong authentication (with USB, NFC and BLE capabilities). It’ll allow enterprises to bring access security to the highest level for both laptop and mobile web apps and native applications.

Finovate: Where do you see Ledger a year or two from now?
Larchevêque: Ledger will be a global leader in trusted hardware for cybersecurity and blockchain-based applications.

FinovateEurope the Musical (Yes, Really)

With all the buzz from FinovateEurope last week, there’s plenty of post-show media to review in the form of articles, blogs, podcasts, and even videos.

However, there’s one piece that stands apart from the rest. Fintech Finance wrote and directed a song* about FinovateEurope 2016, and it’s unlike any coverage we’ve seen before. It’s worth checking out:

Fintech Finance managed to gather and record 47 fintech companies, including presenters, audience members, and analysts, to sing through the fintech melody. Here’s the chorus (sung to the tune of Renegades by X Ambassadors):

But I said wait/
This is great/
Legacy we shall update/
Finovate!

For those less musically inclined, watch Fintech Finance’s (non-musical) video summary (below) or check out the 62 individual company interviews.


*Fintech Finance discloses, “We do not own any copyright of the song – this is a parody based on the original amazing song “Renegades” by X Ambassadors. Original Song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8j7. Audio Provided by: http://www.inchstudio.com/”

FEUNetworking

We’re surfing a wave of momentum from FinovateEurope last week. The sold-out show, dubbed by Business Insider as the “debutante ball for innovative financial technology startups,” featured new fintech from 70 companies. The ideas that flowing from onstage offered analysts, bloggers, and press plenty to write about.
