With the sirens and horns typical of New York City blaring on the street, up in 140 West 57th street a milestone in corporate strategy was taking place. Swiss fintech innovators had come to New York to meet with American fintech companies, international business experts and venture capitalists in the Synpulse New York office for the Swiss Global Enterprise’s Fintech trade mission break-out session. The discussions and presentations were rotating with the precision of the Swiss and the hustle of New York, and the exchange of innovative ideas gave a glimpse into the future of the financial industry.
The presentations of financial technologies were immediately followed by comments and questions by venture capitalists looking for the next leading fintech disruptor. Their remarks illustrated a peaked interest in the innovative new ideas, but also an experienced perspective which provided a learning opportunity for the young fintech companies.
In order to address critical questions about the legal and regulatory landscape, as is the case in any new market entry, seasoned US regulatory experts also presented to illustrate the most important obstacles to look out for when entering the US market. The comprehensive presentation covered topics regarding taxation, legal, immigration and regulatory issues that distinguish the US market from Switzerland and other global markets. Synpulse’s integration into the US market was swift and effective, but only through acute preparedness was this possible, and bringing its client up to new market standards is a key competence that Synpulse brings to the table.
In between the presentations, the breaks served as an opportunity for more personal, one-to-one interaction between those at the event. These smaller scale discussions enabled a more critical understanding of technology and strategy, which would not have been possible in a presentation setting. These steps helped not only build bridges between companies, but initiate the strategic partnerships that can mutually benefit the growth of the parties.
A variety of innovators were present from the cyber security space to robo-advisors, big data analytics, and many others. Featured presentations were made by Synpulse strategic partners, Investment POD and Hexanika, who both spoke to the necessity of digital integration in the rapidly changing financial industry landscape.
Synpulse USA was the opportune place for the event not only geographically but also thematically. Synpulse USA has consistently shown that it not only provides the crucial services for its clients but also implements innovative approaches that sets its clients apart. Through strategic partnerships and steadfast commitment to excellence, Synpulse has been able to distinguish itself as a leading global management consulting firm quickly growing in the US market. Synpulse’s experience as a facilitator and connector between innovators and established industry players served imperative throughout the event to maximize previously unseen opportunities for those that can benefit the most from them.
