How Small Banks Can Work With Tech Start-Ups To Deliver Big Value


Mike McCrary
EVP Ecommerce and Emerging Technology, Lincoln Savings Bank


Session Description

To get in on the action, big banks have the luxury of buying chunks of technology companies, launching entrepreneurial incubators, or hiring loads of tech staff.  Small banks?  Not so much. 

Working with tech start-ups gives you a front-row seat to the best and newest in the industry, before anybody else gets to see it.  It also challenges thinking in a traditional organization.  In many areas, there are vibrant and interesting start-up cultures and communities that can be rewarding to engage. 

In this session we will have a conversation about:

  1. Working with start-up communities – The culture and community of start-ups
  2. Challenges and opportunities – David teaches Goliath a thing or two
  3. Being an “in-treprenuer” (the crazy guy in the next office)
