If it is in your mind, it could soon be in your hand. We are in the age where Science fiction is becoming science reality- Valentine Obi, 2016 at CEBIH 2016.
Valentine Obi, CEO of eTranzact (https://twitter.com/mrvalentineobi) was a speaker at this year’s edition of the committee of e-banking heads (CEBIH) conference held at Transcorp Hilton Hotel in Abuja last week. He talked about “Adding value through disruptive innovation” and how disruptive innovation is affecting every part of life from payments to banking to transportation to hotels to health, etc.
He talked about how disruption can be ugly even bordering legality, using the example of MMM which has over 1.2million users in Nigeria, with everyone required to have a Bank account. He charged the Bankers and other tech companies to look at consumer behavior patterns in MMM and how the knowledge can help transform banking.
