Challengers Conference 2020: All the session videos

In September 2020, Tearsheet hosted its first Challengers Conference. Two days exclusively devoted to digital banking, the Challengers Conference addressed what top firms in banking are innovating on in terms of products and services, strategy, talent, and customer acquisition to thrive in today's unprecedented environment.

Tearsheet's Suman Bhattacharyya summarized the major themes from the conference as startups and incumbents deal with many of the same issues. 

The full session videos are available to Tearsheet's Outlier members. Our partner and sponsor of the event Strands has made its video available that captures a fascinating discussion between Erdi Karaca, head of HSBC Kinetic, and Erik Brieva, CEO of Strands, on using data to power SMB banking services and the incredible digital transformation underway at one of the largest financial institutions in the world.
