10 November 2016
This week’s Top Reads is a special edition. Not because of yesterday’s US election result – although we’ll be thinking about the implications of this for the payments sector over the coming weeks and months – but because this week we played host to New Zealand’s premier payments conference, The Point 2016.
In this edition we’ve pulled out the top insights from the conference and summarised both days for you. We’ve also provided a summary of our inaugural Fintech Innovation Challenge, which Dexibit won and claimed the prize of $5,000 cash and mentoring.
Thanks again to all the delegates, presenters and sponsors for making it a fantastic event.
Top 10 insights from The Point 2016
At The Point 2016 delegates spent two busy days attending conference sessions focusing on today’s most important payments issues. The presentations and discussions generated hundreds of insights and hours of fascinating discussion. Here, we’ve extracted ten standout conclusions from the conference.
Dexibit wins the Fintech Innovation Challenge
Dexibit has been awarded the top prize in the inaugural Fintech Innovation Challenge. The five finalists had six minutes to pitch to delegates at The Point 2016, followed by a Q&A with an expert judging panel. Following their presentations it’s safe to say that an exciting future lies ahead for Kiwi fintech. Find out more about the finalists and the session.
It’s a wrap
At The Point 2016 we had 295 delegates from over 110 organisations attending 25 sessions over two days. It was a jam-packed event with presentations from fintechs, thought-leaders and industry experts. Summaries of day 1 and day 2 are available online for those of you who missed it.
Speaker presentations and videos will soon be on our conference website for those who want to delve into the detail. We’ll let you know when they’re available.
