WE DID IT! Congratulations to all our conference partners, speakers, pitching companies, organizers and volunteers! Based on survey feedback and follow-up calls, FFCON18 was a great success with significant impact that brought together fintech leaders, investors and emerging innovators from start-ups to scale-ups to government regulatory bodies and agencies who have a vision for the future of finance. Highlights from the 4th annual Fintech and Funding Conference (#FFCON18) on March 5-6, 2018 at the Design Exchange and Dentons Canada LLP. 70+ speakers, 12 live pitching companies and over 500+ partners and attendees came together for 1.5 days of immersive educational content, expert perspectives, and a multitude of networking and partnership opportunities.
The energy at VELOCITY was undeniable, especially with this year’s theme all about accelerating the speed of innovation, adoption and scaling of blockchain technology, cryptocurrencies and alternative investing. The conference highlighted many emerging use cases and opportunities that inspired but also discussed many challenges from scaling high frequency transactions to regulations and ‘in production’ dapps versus hype. There is incredible innovation happening in Canada in these sectors and we can’t wait to witness and participate in the next evolution that emerging technologies will have on our society as the adoption of blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies continue to grow.
We leave you with a quote from our presenting partner, Steve Dryall, Co-Managing Director at Nikola Tesla Unite.
“The web forever changed content distribution. Social media forever changed marketing. Cryptocurrency will forever change money”.
