Live Gameshow: Family Feud - FinTech Edition
Trends Stage
Who doesn't just love a great episode of Family Feud? This daytime game show in which five members of one family are pitted against five members of another family. Each team's goal is to guess the results of audience survey questions. A player from each team initially faces off, answering the question to earn the chance to either pass or play. The winning family gets a chance to earn extra cash in a bonus round. The only question - who's going to be our Steve Harvey?!
PANEL: Open Banking Rocket Fuel: Rule 1033
Innovation Stage
Some argue the U.S. has made more progress towards open banking than most for 3 reasons: Plaid, Quovo, and Yodlee. But the U.S. is the global leader in FinTech in spite of regulators not because of them. Are we on the cusp of a new horizon, or simply buttoning up what is already in our orbit?
9:55 am
DEMOS: Hot Startups
Conference demos are hand-selected by a panel of experts and there's no way to apply. They feature the latest technology, often still in the lab, from some of the top late-stage FinTech companies. Best of all.. unlike some conferences, these slots are based on pure merit and cannot be sponsored.

PANEL: Launch Delayed Indefinitely: Consumer FinTech
Trends Stage
Direct to consumer FinTech vs enterprise or marketplace models have grown out of popularity as of late. Instead of setting our sights on what's trending now, how can we chart our course of success for the next decade? Let’s unpack the state of DTC, and when founders and investors predict the end of B2C winter.
PANEL & LIVE PODCAST: What did the Astronaut VC say to Web3? I just need some space.
Innovation Stage
I dare you to find us a 2022 FinTech prediction blog that didn't include Web3. In a galaxy in which fraud is the top Web3 use-case, what does the future hold as top leaders in the space continue to crash? Houston, do we have a problem?

PANEL: Your Rocket Booster is Backordered. FinTech's Role in Supply Chain Woes
Trends Stage
There’s only one reason the Suez Canal trends on Twitter, and it’s never a good one. Global supply chain delays continue to affect our day-to-day, leaving everything from MacBooks to pickup trucks on backorder. What role is FinTech playing to bolster these efforts – from payments, to capital, to traceability?
PANEL & LIVE PODCAST: To Infinity & Beyond: Future of Alt Payments
Innovation Stage
Are alt payments keeping up in the digital world, or is mass adoption still lightyears away? It’s hard to map exactly what will strike popularity next, as consumer convenience continues to drive innovation. From QR codes to chrome plugins and digital wallets, what should we be setting our sights on?
3:20 pm
PANEL: VC Views From Space - What We Had Right and Wrong
Trends Stage
Entrepreneurs and investors alike must constantly learn and iterate from their experiences. What does it take to land your North Star? We found a panel of straight-shooting FinTech venture veterans to share what they had right, and for each of those instances, the many things they had wrong. After all, in venture, it’s all about outliers.
