The FINTECH Book: The Financial Technology Handbook for Investors, Entrepreneurs and Visionaries.
The book provides the first single, consolidated and authoritative resource on the subject and is the first globally crowdsourced treatment of the topic, containing contributions from 85 expert authors from across 20 countries around the globe.
Initiated by FinTech thought leaders and entrepreneurs, Susanne Chishti and Janos Barberis, with their mutual passion for FinTech, they believed that no one author, organisation or region in the world was able to exhaustively cover all the facets and nuances of FinTech. True to the principle of FinTech they crowdsourced the contributions for the book. They successfully reached out to the global FinTech community and selected contributions from a range of individuals and organisations, from entrepreneurs working for FinTech start-ups, to service providers, SMEs and employees of large organisations.
Divided into sections covering: FinTech Themes, Hubs, Solutions, Emerging Markets & Social Impact, Capital & Investment, Enterprise Innovation, Success Stories, Crypto-Currencies & Blockchain, and The Future of FinTech, each chapter provides a first-hand insight from a practitioner at the cutting edge.
The book is designed to be an accessible, interesting and vibrant read which will be of interest to those new to FinTech, as well as pioneers and established experts.
The FINTECH Book will be published by Wiley on 1 April 2016 priced £23.99. It will be available wherever books and ebooks are sold.
