As most of us start to plan our chocolate egg collection – we are sad to announce that there has been a burglary at TECHTalents Towers. On the eve of Pancake Day in the UK (that’s Shrove Tuesday, Fat Tuesday, Mardi Gras or Carnival to the rest of you) we were invaded by some Mad Bunnies. These
An audience member stood up to ask a question of the opening panel of the PowerCARD User Conference organised by HPS in Marrakesh last week. The panel, which featured Abdeslam Alaoui Smaili, CEO of HPS, and Jeroen Holscher, head of global payments practice, Capgemini, focused on new trends in the payments arena. The talk touched

This International Women’s Day we decided to highlight some of our awesome Steering Committee members. We wanted to find out what they thought of robots, hear about some of the great projects they are working on as well as see whether the dreams they had as little girls match the professional lives they live today.

The 2019 FinTECHTalents Steering Committee is ready to roll with a Bigger, Braver, Bolder, Tech-ier Festival experience. Many on our Steering Committee were with us from the start – when FinTECHTalents was just an idea to bring the full FinTech ecosystem under one roof. Many more have joined us on our journey to highlight financial
It’s that time of year again, when we all get asked to share our ‘predictions’. I always pause when I get asked, because I feel ‘predictions’ are different from ‘wishes’ or ‘actions’. There’s much I ‘predict’, which I don’t wish to come true. So instead of predictions – we at VC innovations – want to
Today is a day of Thanksgiving in the good old US of A. Many Americans will sit down to roast turkey, pumpkin pie and questionable politics. However, you do not need to be ‘American’ to find reasons to be thankful this year. So, let’s cast off worries about Brexit, forgive those times your bank took
