Scaling and Digital Disruption in FinTech
Wednesday, June 6, 2018
Today’s firms need to continuously handle rapid changes in both technologies and business models, and digital transformation in particular presents opportunities but also challenges across industries. Both startups and established players need to navigate digital disruption at scale in order to have impact, but face different challenges in doing so: one has new approaches but needs to grow to achieve scale, the other needs to change but has experience in scaling. This panel session will explore strategies to manage digital disruptions such as blockchain in fintech and ensure greater innovation success rates, especially at scale.
Gain the Business Skills to Scale
Ideas are essential to innovation, but it takes real business skills to transform a great idea into a sustainable business. That’s why Penn Wharton Entrepreneurship launched this initiative in partnership with Wharton Lifelong Learning in March 2016.
Hosted at Wharton San Francisco, these workshops feature expert Wharton faculty, alumni entrepreneurs, and Bay Area industry executives who share their insights about how to address common challenges like finding new customers, growing your workforce, managing supply chains, and navigating complex regulations as you scale your business.
