The Future of Data and Innovation

Reading time: 2 minutes

In December 2020, I had the pleasure of helping to host our first annual Silverline Capital Markets & Innovation Summit with industry thought leaders from Nasdaq, Refinitiv, Salesforce, Equilar, and more.

The goal of our event was to opine on all that happened in 2020 and share our priorities and predictions for the year ahead in the important fields of ESG, data-driven deal sourcing, security & compliance, and innovation management. Each session is now offered as a video on demand. We invite you to listen and learn from these expert practitioners and industry leaders in data-driven innovation.

To close out our fantastic 2020 Capital Markets & FinTech Innovation Summit, we knew we needed to do something a little unexpected and fun to close the day out. After a heady day of discussions about diversity, ESG and environmental sustainability, and how firms are reconsidering the very processes that power continuous innovation, we wanted to share some shining examples of our favorite part of the Salesforce ecosystem — the coolest apps on the market.

We invited the CEOs and founders from four incredible data technology companies to do a speed round of demoing their apps, talk about why they’ve built their careers on these innovative technologies, and share in a lively discussion about the future of leveraging data. And oh, did we mention it was a competition, too?

A future-focused happy hour

Check out the replay of the Founders Happy Hour with demos from each of these incredible leaders, and a long-form discussion about where we all see the race for data going:

Congratulations to KG Charles-Harris for winning the audience favorite award and for such an incredible demo of the emerging intersection between data analytics, natural language processing, and natural language interrogation of KPIs! We were thrilled to make a donation to his selected non-profit — the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Curious how you can get your Salesforce apps connected to the tools and real time data showcased in this Founders Happy Hour? We are happy to put you in touch and figure out how we can best help you pilot these bleeding-edge technologies. 

It’s our passion to help you drive innovation. Get in touch.
