Ryan Ross, BrightTALK | Daniel P. Simon, Author, The Money Hackers & Co-Founder, Vested
Join Ryan Ross as he sits down with Daniel P. Simon, Author The Money Hackers, to discuss the world of fintech as discussed in the book.
About the book:
Whether you’ve heard of fintech or not, it’s already changing your life. Have you ever “Venmoed” someone? Do you think of investing in Bitcoin - even though you can’t quite explain what it is? If you’ve deposited a check using your iPhone, that’s fintech. And if you’ve gone to a bank branch and discovered it has been closed and shuttered for good, odds are that’s because of fintech too.
The Money Hackers focuses on some of fintech’s most powerful disruptors - a ragtag collection of financial outsiders and savants - and uses their incredible stories to explain not just how the technology works, but how the Silicon Valley thinking behind the technology, ideas like friction, hedonic adaptation, democratization, and disintermediation, is having a drastic effect on the entire banking and finance industry.
Daniel P. Simon is a writer, entrepreneur, and financial communications expert. He has been part of the Fintech Revolution since its inception, advising on some of the biggest brands in the space including Morgan Stanley, Bloomberg, and Goldman Sachs.
Daniel’s focus on finance and its future led him to become CEO and Co-Founder of Vested, an integrated communications firm where he and his team partner with top financial and fintech companies.
Daniel’s natural curiosity about all things related to finance and his unique viewpoint as an insider in the financial industry have perfectly positioned him to be an authority on the beginnings of the fintech revolution. He’s been watching the industry since its inception and has chronicled its major events, from the day when Apple launched its App Store, to the Winkelvoss twins becoming key players in the world of Bitcoin, and beyond.
