In addition to the challenges presented by climate change, welfare gaps and social instability, the post-pandemic economic climate has put tremendous pressure on governments and companies, forcing them to adapt through different innovations in finance and tech. Financial institutions and Tech companies need to know, understand and get ahead of these challenges and retool to win in the next era. Therefore, the leitmotiv of the New York Fin&Tech Conference – organized by St. John’s University, The Peter J. Tobin College of Business, in cooperation with FintechNews.org and Forinvest, Spain’s biggest finance and business networking event – is the following: The Intersection Between Business and ResearchLEARN MORE
For us, some issues are paramount: Foresight, Innovation, Values, Adaptability, and Synergies.
To address these challenges, the Fin&Tech Conference New York 2022 will bring together insights from academic and industry experts to consider how new technologies, combined with new consumers, are redefining the way companies must now design products and deliver services in the aftermath of the pandemic:
– Foresight Matters: if you don’t know where you are going, you might end up somewhere else. Many companies can manage short-term bursts of high performance, but only a few can sustain it over a longer period.
– Innovation Matters: even if you are on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there. In a densely connected global economy, successful products and strategies are quickly copied.
– Values Matter: doing right because it is right, not because it pays, needs to be the foundation of business. A sound development of business ethics should not forget an obvious and important consideration: business is about human activity that is carried out by individuals within organizations.
– Adaptability Matters: crazy times call for crazy organizations. In a world of mind-flipping change, what matters is not merely a company’s competitive advantage at a point in time, but its evolutionary advantage over time. An adaptable company requires adaptable minds.
– Synergies Matter: Synergy is the benefit that results when two or more agents work together to achieve something either one couldn’t have achieved on its own. It’s the concept of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts. In today’s world, synergies equal to more efficiency, more efficacy, and higher profitability.
