Disruption Forum: the Idea
Our idea behind Disruption Forum London Fintech is to engage experts who actively shape the fintech landscape in a constructive discussion about creating and growing fintech products. Top-level managers from banks, people from fintech startups, industry influencers, and product people will join the debate to find the answers to fintech’s most nagging questions:
- How to scale a fintech product?
- What teams do we need to build and effectively manage a fintech product?
- What can fintech learn from banks?
- What can banks learn from fintech?
Disruption Forum – previously in Berlin
It will be the second edition of Disruption Forum organised by Netguru. The first one took place in Berlin and was joined by representatives of companies such as solarisBank, N26, figo, Penta and many more.
During the presentations and discussions, our experts talked about UX design being a vital element of fintech products. They also discussed Blockchain’s impact on the market and tried to predict how the adoption of machine learning, AI, and IoT would transform financial platforms. On top of that, they also debated what implementing the PSD2 would mean for the industry. Read the key takeaways from the Berlin edition of the Disruption Forum here.
‘I think it was one of the best panels I was on over the past two years. It turned out to be a great opportunity to discuss the more or less ‘contradictory beliefs’ of N26 and solarisBank with the help of other smart people’ – said Jörg Howein, Chief Product Officer of solarisBank.
Disruption Forum is a unique event where we hope to get to know, dazzle, and inspire you. It will take place on 23 October 2018, 6 pm in Level39, London. We want to keep it cosy, so the number of admissions is limited.
You’re more than welcome to sign up here.

Those who attend can expect a fully-immersive educational experience. Imagine a vibrant village, where the deep rhythm, repetition, and texture of traditional African music pulses.
