TreasurUp at RBI's Innovation Breakfast
Niels van Daatselaar
On Thursday the 4th of June, TreasurUp had the pleasure to participate in Raiffeisen Bank International's Innovation Breakfast.
This annual event is normally visited by a few hundred people in the main hall of the bank’s headquarters in Vienna plus many more through video connections. For the first time ever, the event could not be held in Vienna because of obvious Corona measures. Hundreds of staff members participated actively in a large webinar set up. This year’s theme was: Innovation during crisis. An optimistic discussion led by Aleksandra Petkov-Georgieva. The panel consisted of: Kristian Luoma (Head of Op Lab/Innovations, OP Bank Finland), Benjamin Ensor ( Director of Research at 11:FS), Valerie Brunner (Group Head Institutional Clients) and Niels from TreasurUp.
Even though we all missed the fresh croissants and coffee, a lot of people responded after the session that this year’s version via video connections may have been the best one ever. Good to see so much optimism, interaction and willingness to further grow in a different way during this period of time.
