Digital platforms are going to revolutionise the way we spend, consume, and live in the sharing economy of today. The leaders we have got together on 12-13 May are harbingers of the first wave of fintech disruption in India – who are challenging traditional banks. These CEOs are reimagining finance and redefining banking of the future, and in the process threatening to eat the lunch of big banks – in the words of the CEO of the biggest bank J.P.Morgan. Come meet the daring visionaries for whom the word impossible means nothing!

India Financial Forum on 12th May 2016 will bring together the most innovative and disruptive forces under a roof and try to direct that energy into inspiring you. We will be launching a Global Blockchain Think Tank and hosting a Blockchain symposium to explore how India can leverage the distributed technology to solve our problems such as financial inclusion, micro payments , asset monitoring, subsidy distributions, license renewals, toll collections, friction- less asset transfers and smart contracts.
