Tearsheet's Challengers Conference 2020

The entire banking ecosystem has been upended and transformed over the past few years, and COVID-19 has accelerated that process by leaps and bounds.

Tearsheet's Challengers Conference will bring together senior leaders from banks, credit unions, challenger banks, payments firms, and firms outside of banking for a candid discussion about what the top firms are doing with products and services, strategy, talent, and customer acquisition to thrive in today's unprecedented environment.

The Challengers Conference seeks to recognize companies and professionals that are forging ahead with new services and products to help customers save, move, and borrow money in the modern era.

Join us for two days of insights and new connections with an influential group of decision-makers.

Like all Tearsheet online conferences, the Challengers Conference 2020 is free for members of Tearsheet's Outlier membership program. Outlier provides subscriber-only content, free events (like this one), weekly briefings on important topics delivered by industry experts, access to Tearsheet research, and more. You can apply here.

All non-Outlier member attendees will receive a complimentary two-week subscription to Outlier at signup.
