Whether you are new to our fintech conferences or a hardcore Finovate veteran, you are likely to find the real-time conversation on #Finovate, to be one of the most entertaining—and often informative—aspects of the show. From talk about the way bots raise interesting questions about the new role of human agents, to the debates over the ever-expanding use-cases for the blockchain, the tweets from our Twitter audience go a long way toward helping put some of the most innovative technologies in context.
Our Twitter followers are not above issuing a challenge or two, either. How does this technology help banks and credit unions serve their customers better? Why does this solution secure my personal information or my business data better than another? What does this innovation truly do to foster financial inclusion and support the underbanked?
And while the wit can occasionally be sharp (one Tweeter referred to it as “Finovate meets Shark Tank!”), the goal of building better fintech always shines through. From “tough-love tweets” to gif-animated ovations, #Finovate at FinovateFall 2016 was once again the great combination of professional insight and been-around-the-block-once-or-twice banter that we’ve come to know and love from the show’s most passionate fans.
So with that in mind, let’s take a look at a sampling of what folks had to say about FinovateFall last week.
