Is 2019 the Year of the Neobanks?

Just 10 years after the launch of the first US digital consumer bank, investment in the neobank space at large continues to rise along with a favorable shift in the banking landscape. As a result, massive opportunities are being created for domestic startups and EU players alike.

We’ve tapped a group of leading industry experts to explore this shift further, inviting the founders of Chime, Varo, Grasshopper and N26 to debate why there is a need to create an alternative to traditional banks. This discussion will unpack the importance of customer experience, and how regulation and the advantage of acquiring a banking license has the potential to be a game-changer – making for great discourse in Vegas. Thought leaders include:

Chris Britt, Founder & CEO, Chime
Colin Walsh, CEO & Co-Founder, Varo Money
Judith Erwin, CEO, Grasshopper Bank
Valentin Stalf, Founder & CEO, N26

Hear firsthand from these digital only players who are disrupting banking with innovative products and fee-free services for consumers and early stage companies. This unique and contentious discussion will provide the unmissable takeaways that you can only find at Money20/20 USA.
