Lending Club, Mint, CreditKarma and SmartyPig to talk Banking 2.0at SXSW

SXSW Interactive 2010SXSW Interactive has quickly become the conference where attendees and presenters explore the latest trends, technologies and products that are changing how we interact, communicate and transact.

This year, Lending Club will sit with SmartyPig, Mint and CreditKarma to talk money and innovation in the banking industry.  Jennifer Openshaw, CEO of Family Financial Network will moderate a conversation that promises to be interesting and thought provoking.

In the midst of a financial crisis, people are compelled to save, budget and lower their dependency on traditional financial services. Stock picking communities, person-to-person lending, personal finance management and even credit score management tools, have emerged to serve the changing needs of customers exclusively served by traditional banks and credit unions.

In this panel, we will discuss key trends, emerging technologies, and financial products that are changing the way people interact with the banking and financial services industries.

Banking 2.0: Financial Services Driven by People & Emerging Technologies
Saturday March 13 at 12:30pm at the Hilton Hotel, downtown Austin, Room G

    It was time somebody would come to serve the changing needs of
    customers underserved by traditional banks and credit unions.

    It is really nice to know when different people and groups start to
    unite in a common goal. This time, money and innovation will be
    highlighted and I am really happy that companies and startups are
    now prioritizing things like that.

    other credit and financial companies to provide the right services
    people require.
