Our Thought Leaders in Financial Technology – TLFT – blog is a follow-up to our highly successful Thought Leaders in Cloud Computing – TLCC – series. In TLFT, we interview thought leaders in the financial technology sector – whether they are entrepreneurs building great companies, product/user experience designers building great products, or executives at large companies with unique perspectives on how the financial technology is evolving. We discuss trends, disruptions, entrepreneurial opportunities, monetization models, challenges, socio-cultural impact and much more in a seven-part series. We also try to highlight for our audience gaps in the current value chain where they may start a venture, from the unique vantage point that CIOs and CTOs have. This is a wonderful opportunity to add value to the entrepreneurial ecosystem of the world.
