CTO Craft Bytes - Fintech CTO Panel

Join us for a deep dive into the challenges faced by technology leaders in financial startups, as we meet CTOs from startups bringing payments, loans and banking into the 21st century. We'll hear what pressures and complexities operating in heavily regulated environments impose on CTOs and their teams, how they hire the right talent in a very competitive market, and what upcoming technologies and opportunities there are for disrupting financial models.

The panel will be led by Joel Greensite, CTO at tenthavenue and previously consultant with FatWallet and Monexa, and tech lead at Accenture and AKQA
