MoneyFest is back this April 19-23, bringing the best digital fintech content for you to access anywhere at any time. For free.

While we couldn’t possibly pick our favourite session to look forward to, we asked one of our awesome speakers, Marisol Menéndez, Chief Open Innovation Officer, Nordic Future Innovation/South Summit, to share just some of her top picks and why.

Lessons from a superapp: Gojek's ecosystem of partners

When: Monday April 19th, 12:15 - 12:35 (EDT)
Hans Patuwo, Head of Payments, Gojek
Anu Gupta, Director, Asia PR Werkz

“I cannot wait for this session as I believe the growth we need today to get to the future comes from collaborating. Collaborating in general, collaborating with partners and within systems and ecosystems. When leveraged in the right way, ecosystems of partners should empower and give agility in the growth process to adapt to the challenges of these times we live in.”

Collaboration as a value multiplier for startups

When: Tuesday April 20th, 12:15 - 12:35 (EDT)
Jillian Williams, Principal, Anthemis Group
Amias Gerety, Partner, QED Investors

“Open Innovation needs to create real value to be useful and relevant. One of the most important drivers is the value creation for startups, reflected in the value multiplier. It's always interesting to look into concrete take ins for value capture and I’m excited to hear Jillian and Amias’ insights.”

Investing in women entrepreneurs

When: Wednesday April 21st, 12:45pm - 13:10pm (EDT)
Neeta Mundra, Industry Transformation Advisor, Salesforce
Ali Paterson, Editor in Chief/Founder, Fintech Finance

“As a Women in Tech and in Entrepreneurship we should always push to support women entrepreneurs, who are still less represented. Diversity enriches results and creates value. Bring on this super session with Neeta and Ali!”

How will the tech stack of the future be built to allow greater collaboration?

When: Friday April 23rd, 13:00 - 13:15 (EDT)
Kahina Van Dyke, Global Head of DCDA, Standard Chartered
Zennon Kapron, Director, Kapronasia

“We need to build the present with an eye for the future. Nowadays the old structures are hindering collaboration. We should build new structures in a lego mindset to allow all possibilities of collaboration, and be ready to grow and adapt through times. Flexibility and resilience is in the DNA so I’m sure Kahina and Zennon will have heaps of killer knowledge to share.”
