Tearsheet's Convergence Conference 2021

Modern fintech's roots are in unbundling the bank. Startups carved out part of the banking journey and did a really good job delivering a modern customer experience. As these firms have grown, they've added in more products and services -- to the point that many are modern day Super Financial Apps, a singular app that provides customers one point of contact to manage their financial lives. And we're just getting started.

Join Tearsheet's inaugural Convergence conference as we explore trends towards top brands providing banking, investing, lending, and payments. We'll congregate top firms and professionals to talk about where we've come from and where the trends are headed. Convergence is sponsored by Publicis Sapient.

Convergence Conference 2021 is a virtual event and is free for all to attend. Sign up at the bottom of this page to receive an insightful post-event guide and session recordings.
