FinTech Ladies Deep Dive Session on November 9th

Corporate Governance: how to get it right!

What is corporate governance and why it is indispensable for our FintTech community?

As FinTechs want to shape the future, it brings more to the table than innovative technology and seeding money. In a highly regulated environment, like the financial services industry, good corporate governance is indispensable, remember Bernie Madoff’s Ponzi scheme or WireCard’s insolvency …

Understanding your leadership role within your company or bringing innovation to a board as non-executive, isn’t just taking the legal framework in account. So, what are exactly the skills you need to display as dependent or independent board member? And what does it take to build a great board? We already know that diversity is key!

Please find our panel of expert ladies who will share their insights and discuss the way forward.
