The First Globally Crowdsourced Book on FinTech is out now.
The FINTECH Book is a single, consolidated and authoritative resource on financial technology and is the first globally crowdsourced treatment of the topic, containing contributions from 85 expert authors from across 20 countries around the globe.
Initiated by fintech thought leaders and entrepreneurs, Susanne Chishti
and Janos Barberis. With their passion for fintech, they believed that no one author, organisation or region in the world was able to exhaustively cover all the facets and nuances of FinTech. True to the principle of FinTech they crowd- sourced the contributions for the book. They successfully reached out to the global FinTech community and selected contributions from a range of individuals and organisations: from entrepreneurs working for fintech startups to service providers, SMEs and employees of large organisations.
The book is divided into sections covering: FinTech Themes, Hubs, Solutions, Emerging Markets & Social Impact, Capital & Investment, Enterprise Innovation, Success Stories, Crypto-Currencies & Blockchain, and The Future of FinTech. Each chapter provides a first-hand insight.
The FINTECH book is designed to be an accessible and vibrant read which will be of interest to those new to fintech as well as pioneers and established experts.
