The Search, Global Tour: North America

North America covers an area of 24.71km2, has a population in excess of 579million and is home to 154 unicorns. It is also known for its 14 decacorns (and counting!). In this edition of The Search, coming direct from Wall Street, we take a closer look at this incredible region and discover the impact that startup culture has had over the last year as fintech innovation has flourished amidst the pandemic.

Meet the three inspirational business leaders who share their thoughts on the key innovations, events and milestones that have transformed the world of finance into the world of fintech that we see today.

Anthony Scaramucci, Founder and Managing Partner of SkyBridge Capital, takes us on an exploration of ‘The History and Future of Money’. Dan Doney, CEO & Co-Founder of rapidly scaling Fintech Securrency, offers an explanation on the role of Blockchain in finance, and Jeffrey C. Sprecher, ICE Founder, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer, and Chairman of the New York Stock Exchange will share his experiences of founding, building and leading a $67bn market cap global financial giant.

Congratulations to the Winners of The Search: North America
