Bogged down by incumbent retail and distribution networks, traditional organisations are investing heavily in digitising their products and services as the fight to stay relevant heats up. Agile challengers who are making their own rules continue to enter the market and are building their capabilities at a significantly faster pace than traditional institutions.
Founded in 2009, Uber has fast become one of these challengers which is threatening the status quo in the transportation industry. Operating in 58 countries and 300 cities, Uber already has a valuation of $50 Billion USD (May 2015). Famous for making headlines around the world, Uber has opened up the discussion on the role of regulation in facilitating or hindering disruption.
Join Finsia and Tom White, Demand Manager, Uber, to continue the discussion on driving innovation and to explore the role of regulation in facilitating or hindering the development of disruptive technologies. The heavily regulated environment Uber operates in presents many learnings for those working in financial services to take advantage of.
Whether spearheading change within your organisation, working on digital projects, or looking to start your own business, find out from Tom White the best practice strategies you need to know when working in the disruption space.
