The 10x Sessions - FinTech


There’s been a lot of talk about fintech lately. We talk about the billions of dollars being invested in fintech; the wave of unicorns and startups in this space; the challenge they bring to banks and incumbents; the way in which they are reaching new spaces and places; but...

What is FinTech?

It is no longer that big bucket of finance and tech. What areas of finance the FinTech startups automating?

In this upcoming session of 10x Sessions - FinTech, bring yourself along with your friends whom are intrigued to learn in depth about the FinTech industry and we you will learn these at the end of the event:

    • Introduction to FinTech
    • Overview of Blockchain Technology and the Industry
    • Lessons from FinTech
    • Q&A and attendees discussion

    In our 5th series of 10x Sessions, we will be bringing together the brightest minds behind the FinTech industry in Kuala Lumpur.

    Johnny Mayo - EIR at KERN Ventures

    As a graduate of the 500 Startups accelerator program in Silicon Valley and acknowledged in Forbes 30 Under 30 for his work in finance and venture capital, Johnny has played a leading role in developing the FinTech agenda across Southeast Asia; educating numerous organisations, regional banks, national regulators, and government departments on how they can understand and adopt blockchain strategies.

    Kyri Andreou - Co Founder of Ata Plus

    entrepreneurship, sustainable business and Islamic finance. At Ata Plus he looks into Product Innovation, Education, Branding, Marketing and Communication.

    Iskandar Ezzahuddin - Country Director of GoBear Malaysia

    As Country Director, Iskandar looks to expand the Gobear Malaysia portfolio with the aim of taking the hair-pulling hassle for consumers when it comes to choosing financial products that is best for them in an unbiased and transparent manner. After spending formative years in Consumer Marketing and Digital Performance Marketing in Multinational companies like Procter&Gamble and Nestle, Iskandar transitioned to the financial industry with Product Management roles with UOB Bank & Citibank where he was instrumental in
    the launch of the Shell Citi Card.

    With so much movement in the industry and so many great minds living in and around Kuala Lumpur, it seemed silly that there wasn't a regular entrepreneurs focused meet-up group that is around networking and thought leaders.

    The 10x Sessions was formed to fill this void.

    Once a month, we'll bring together experts and enthusiasts to talk 10x deeper on a particular topic or industry as well as share their insights and tips in regards to the topic or industry.
