Innovation & creativity: how to design a banking startup from scratch

Innovation & creativity: how to design a banking startup from scratch

Diversity is a competitive value: different backgrounds can provide a heterogeneous set of talents, skills and experiences; different approaches to work can give rise to innovative ideas. At the base of this model there is the value of people, freedom of thought and expression.

From Belgrade to Bogotá, passing through the FinTech capital of Italy, Andrea Gojakovic and Carolina Rey Bedon tell us how their worlds came together and how they managed to combine data and design in order to create a bank close to people and businesses based on creativity and innovation.

Andrea, Data Science & Modelling Manager and Carolina, Digital Strategy & UX Design Specialist, met three years ago when illimity was a startup that had yet to be built. What they knew was that the new bank would live on innovation and human touch in every dimension. This was the foundation to start building a bank that was "different" from all others, one that always encourages thinking outside the box and looking beyond.

Our illimiters, at the event of illimitHER inside the 4 Weeks 4 Inclusion, will explain how to leverage data, technology, User Experience and the sharing of ideas for a new way of thinking and designing cutting-edge banking services.

NOVEMBER 16 – 6:00 P.M.
