The Tech companies have been very active in 2016 to disrupt or partner with banks and financial institutions to bring more value to segments of the market that needed it even if they didn't know it before it was available. But similar observations can be made about other industries, such as healthcare and the media.

In this new event in Los Angeles hosted in the headquarters of City National Bank, we will discuss the major trends that happened this year in financial services, healthcare, media and other industries, and project ourselves into the future with experts in the field to have a better understanding of what is coming our way in 2017.

We will look into the investment side to see what ideas and projects have been funded during the year, what is not and where there is lack of offers in areas not well addressed today.

This event will be Live Streamed and we can now take questions online during the event even if you are not in the room like we did in London and Luxembourg just a few weeks ago.

This event is free for Business members and the Live Streaming is free for Online members. You can select your membership HERE.

Feel free to inform colleagues about this event who may be interested.
