Become an innovator & build the next FinTech unicorn!
Leading Futures is an annual, student-led, case competition and conference held at the ESADE campus in Barcelona. The 2017 event will take place on November 23-24. Leading Futures is composed of two separate events: the case competition and the conference.
The case competition participants will be asked to create a brand-new FinTech venture for Banco Sabadell's innovation hub, InnoCells. While many will apply only 6 teams will be invited to come to Barcelona to attend a 5 hour marathon of workshops with Google, Insitum, Business Models Inc and InnoCells to fine tune their new venture idea. The next day, they will pitch their final solutions in front of a panel of industry experts, during the Leading Futures conference.
The conference is open to all MBA students curious about innovation and venture building. The day event will consist of workshops, keynotes, panel discussions and networking opportunities. With a focus on "how to build digital ventures," conference goers will have the opportunity to attend workshops with Google, Insitum, Business Models Inc, and InnoCells, on Design Thinking and Business Model Design, as well as hear established FinTech entrepreneurs talk about their experience. The day will finish with a networking event, during which students will have a chance to interact with the event partners and companies will get to meet new talent.
If you're an aspiring entrepreneur, if you want to build up your innovation skills, or if you're interested in how FinTech is disrupting traditional banking, this event is for you.
