In 2009, Marc Andreessen remarked "banking is just information science." Inspired by these words, TEDxNewWallStreet aims to explore the empowerment of the new reality -- a banking system different than the Industrial Age system we inherited.
As compared to pundits who portray bankers and banking as forever unhealthy, or constraints that reduce innovation and reinforce a cyclical nature of finances, the team behind TEDxNewWallStreet believes such paradigms are not inevitable.
What if Silicon Valley, San Francisco, the Pacific Northwest or other technology clusters grew New financial centers on quite different terms than exist in New York?
How would they spearhead technology in faster, less expensive, more transparent and accountable ways that contrast with the recent, and recurring, issues of the game as played on Wall Street?
Come join a visionary dialogue that leads Silicon Valley entrepreneurs, venture capitalists and engineers to reinvent banking for the Information Age.
