Executive MBA Information Session & Chicago Conversations Event | The University of Chicago Booth School of Business

Chicago Booth London Campus
Woolgate Exchange, 25 Basinghall St.
London, London, City of EC2V 5HA
United Kingdom

Join us for a short presentation on our London-based, top-ranked Chicago Booth Executive MBA Program, followed by a Chicago Conversations event "FinTech Entrepreneurship."

The innovations arising from the convergence of technology with traditional financial structures, known as FinTech, are transforming the financial services industry as we know—but can they replace it?

FinTech companies benefit from the freedoms of lean operations and light regulations, but face unique challenges that include lack of capital and customer base. How can leaders of this emerging sector scale up to meet market needs while preserving the integrity of their businesses?

Join us February 15, 2016 to hear entrepreneurs and other influential figures at the forefront of FinTech discuss the trends and challenges they are navigating in this field.

You don't want to miss our candid panel discussion, "FinTech Entrepreneurship," moderated by Waverly Deutsch, clinical professor of entrepreneurship at Chicago Booth, with opening remarks from Robert Wardrop '96, executive director Cambridge Centre for Alternative Finance.

Panelists include:

  • Rahul Pakrashi, '10, chief risk officer, Funding Circle
  • Joel Perlman, cofounder and chief strategy officer, OakNorth Bank Limited
  • Hiroki Takeuchi, CEO and founder, GoCardless

We look forward to meeting you in London on February 15 at 6 p.m.
