New technology enables existing Financial Services companies, ‘incumbents ‘,startups and scale-ups, ‘FinTechs’, to introduce new business models and profit models in innovative ways, to keep ahead of the competition or to disrupt the traditional competitive landscape in Financial Services. Experience shows that successful founders of FinTech startups and scale-ups differentiate themselves compared to management in existing large organizations, by being able to build the right teams and pick the best business idea to develop and implement their own innovative business model and profit model, to get their FinTech startup and scale-up successfully launched.
Because of all the different technological developments a.o. machine learning and artificial intelligence, existing large Financial Institutions are forced to transform themselves quickly by promoting internal entrepreneurship, ‘intrapreneurship’, and to form different types of partnerships with FinTech startups and scale-ups. At the same time, the number of existing senior management positions in traditional large companies is declining rapidly due to the use of new technologies. Simultaneously, the number of available positions within the Financial Services Industry as a whole are expected to diminish over time, including senior & middle management positions. These senior managers face another serious problem in finding a position within the FinTech industry. Their profiles are very different from the one required to be able to start and develop a FinTech-startup or scale-up or to be hired by such a company.
