Here’s how to make the best of it:
A little bit of preparation won’t hurt:
Our second edition of Fintegrate Zone boasts of carefully handpicked speakers. Spend some time researching the speakers who will be sharing their experiences. Look up their fields of expertise, their accomplishments and their stories. Frame intelligent questions based on the information of the talk provided to you. Try and understand the audience that will be joining you, and how best to approach them. Also ensure that you have a fair idea of the concepts that are to be discussed before you enter the seminar hall. All of this information is available on the Fintegrate Zone website, so you don’t even have to look far and wide.
Make meaningful connections:
During networking sessions, people often make the mistake of trying to talk to everybody to maximize their chances of networking. At a conference as huge in scale as FZ 18 this often does not work, because people are not interested in working with you unless you take time out to have a meaningful conversation with them. Therefore, you should know who you want to interact with, and spend quality time in making connections with them. Perhaps, if you are an entrepreneur looking for co-founders or collaboration, do look out for fellow participants, or if seeking investors, we have the investor zone for pre-selected attendees.
Meet the startups at F50:
Whether you are a corporate honcho looking to work with the brightest minds in the business, or a fellow entrepreneur looking to interact with your peers, F50 is the place to be. This section showcases the top 50 startups in FinTech – what their goals are and how they can revolutionize the industry. You can talk to them about their endeavours, share your own ideas and find meaningful collaborations. We would ask you not to just go around distributing a bunch of business cards, though. Honest conversations are far more effective, and you can gain new insight.
