During this session, you'll learn what the process has been like for two banks. This will include a conversation with the banks' leaders on how the new solutions are being implemented.

3.C: Inclusive Partnerships and the Governance of Innovation

Prof. Erik P.M. Vermeulen | Professor, Executive and Entrepreneur, Tilburg University/ Philips Lighting; Nika Kurdiani | Deputy CEO, TBC Bank; Jack Ngare | Managing Director, Finserve Africa Limited More

Strategies for inclusive partnerships that deliver innovation, for you and your clients.

Banks and MFIs are part of a thriving and changing ecosystem, with the challenge of new collaborators and new competitors. This raises the question of how the leadership of banks should govern the process of innovation, and in particular, how to discover, forge and develop partnerships. Professor Vermeulen will give an introduction on the cutting edge thinking in this area, and guide a discussion with session participants on their successes (and perhaps failures?) in partnerships.
