  • Steering FinTech towards Sustainable Development & Green Economies Steering FinTech towards Sustainable Development & Green Economies Hazel Henderson, D.Sc.Hon., (FRSA) Dec 14 2016 5:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    In 2015, the United Nations’ 195 member countries adopted their Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and committed to the global transition from the fossil-fueled industrial Era to low-carbon, knowledge-richer, green economies. This requires reforming incumbent finance and democratizing such services to drive this global transition toward accessible green technologies, jobs and infrastructure. While FINTECH companies can power this transition, few have embraced the potential of this next stage of human development. Too many FINTECH startups are being acquired by incumbent banks or coopted to serve narrow interests and conventional profit-maximizing.

    •Many block-chain based patents have been filed by Goldman Sachs, Wells Fargo, J.P. Morgan, Bank of America, as well as similar initiatives by Barclay’s, UBS, Santander, along with venture capital investors. Over 50 major financial institutions see FINTECH as cutting their internal costs by up to $20 billion annually by 2020.
    •Will FINTECH no longer be disrupting incumbent financial giants – but serving them by merely “paving their legacy cow paths” (i.e., back-office systems, records, transfers, loans, remittances)?
    •Or will FINTECH adopt higher goals and independent values beyond Wall Street’s worst greed and self-interest? Will they join the global transition to more sharing, accessible, cleaner, greener, sustainable economies for our common future?

  • Strengthening your app monetization super powers Strengthening your app monetization super powers Evan Schuman, Moderator Jan 25 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    It takes more than Superman or his Justice League to develop and maintain an effective app monetization strategy. This is especially true in light of a recent report which found that 0.19 percent of all mobile game players contributed 48 percent of revenue. How can one identify the high-spend users while not alienating the remaining percentage that only have potential to spend within the app?

    Ideally, one would customize app strategy according to type of user. Better still, each user would have her own strategy. Unfortunately this isn't a scalable solution to monetization.

    In this webinar, you'll learn to:

    * Customize your monetization strategy so that it's scalable
    * Unlock the revenue potential of lower spending users
    * Attract higher-spend users
    * Negotiate monetization strategies without alienating current users
