Lawyers, Bankers and Startup Entrepreneurs Talk Fintech

Archive Now Available!

Tony Sabeta, B.Eng., Donald B. Johnston and Jill P. Fraser

Fintech is rapidly expanding in today’s digital world. Services like seamless digital onboarding, rapid loan approvals and person-to-person payments have become common with the growing accessibility of fintech. Where fintech was once only a method of e-commerce, it has been redefined into its own commercial enterprise and as a possible alternative to traditional financial service providers.

In this webinar, Aird & Berlis’ legal experts and representatives from the financial services sector discuss everything from fintech regulations to artificial intelligence.

Topics Include:

  • Will we continue to see the fintech industry grow and, if so, will it be characterized as a disruptor or enabler when compared to Canada’s big banks?
  • Is there a way for the banks and fintech startups to work in harmony and to capitalize on the fintech client-service model?
  • What are some of the setbacks that might be stalling the growth of the fintech industry in Canada?
  • Best practices for organizations interested in engaging with startups
  • Tips for startups looking to sell to major organizations
  • How to overcome challenges in patenting your fintech inventions
  • Legal solutions for startups when working with Big Banks
