I had the pleasure of catching up with Humphrey Laubscher, NAB Labs' Fintech Innovation Manager, for our latest Future² podcast. We touched on a number of questions relevant for not just banking and financial services organisations, but other large organisations facing similar challenges and startups looking to partner and/or disrupt incumbents.
For those of you who don't know, NAB Labs is the innovation arm of the National Australia Bank, and aside from recently announcing a $50m startup venture fund, NAB Labs is heavily focused on collapsing the time it takes to bring new products to market, investigating partnerships and potential investments and designing a scalable innovation system that sits at the heart of the bank.
A must listen if you are looking to drive innovation in any of the above realms.
Your host and occasional cybernetic organism, Steve Glaveski, is committed to helping people better navigate the growing uncertainty that technology change brings, in order to survive, thrive, create more value for the world and lead more fulfilling lives.
Steve is the CEO and co-founder of innovation accelerator Collective Campus, founder of children's entrepreneurship program Lemonade Stand, author of Amazon best-seller The Innovation Manager's Handbook and the Wiley book, Employee to Entrepreneur, investor in blockchain based fractional property investment platform Konkrete and is a keynote speaker and startup advisor.
When not fighting T-1000s Steve can be found in the gym, hiking, skating at the beach, attempting standup comedy, at a heavy metal show or socially lubricating at a whisky bar.
