How does a huge financial group such as HSBC foster a culture of innovation internally while collaborating with FinTechs?
This is exactly what I sought to understand when speaking to my latest guest Rita. She gets straight to the point and provides definitive examples without sugarcoating the requirements Global functions, such as legal or risk, need to have in place at a global level.
We delve into how start-ups are identified and selected, procurement management, the implementation of the proof of concept, as well as the all-important results. We also deep dive into a use case where a natural-language-generation company based in France is serving a risk team based in Hong Kong.
I also speak to Rita about the internal innovation programmes within the group, whether through VC investments with HSBC Ventures, staff training focused on innovation initiatives designed in conjunction with Oxford, or the intrapreneurship the HSBC entrepreneur-in-residence project.
