As the world ushers in the Fourth Industrial Revolution riding on the crest of digital innovation, blockchain and Artificial Intelligence, Fintech is slated to be one of the most disruptive technologies that is poised to change how the world banks, insures, transacts and trades in the 21st Century. With this in mind, the Observer Research Foundation, India’s leading non-profit, independent, multidisciplinary public policy think tank, presents Mumbai Tech Talk.

This inaugural Mumbai Tech Talk will focus on the ambitious Fintech policy of the Government of Maharashtra (GoM) announced in early 2018, and in particular its aims to establish a Global Fintech Hub in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region and make the state one of the top-five Fintech centres in the world in the next five years.
