Disrupting Financial Services

ClassPass
In the not-too-distant future, Angela Strange of a16z believes nearly every company will derive a significant portion of its revenue from financial services. In this talk at the a16z Summit, she delves into the infrastructure that's enabling this transformation and, more importantly, how that's going to fundamentally change banking as we know it. Every company, even those that have nothing to do with financial services, will have the opportunity to benefit from fintech for the first time.
 
Startups will be able to launch companies faster and more cheaply. Existing financial services institutions will be able to introduce new products quickly—and spend less on IT maintenance. And most importantly, this means more choices, better products, and lower prices for consumers.
 
The first wave of fintech companies a decade ago proved that we don't need physical locations for banking. Now, the next wave is unlocking the remaining infrastructure for building better financial services: banking licenses, payment processors, regulatory compliance, and so on. Because startups (and incumbents) can now draw on these APIs and more, they can create better products that help many, many more people. It also means that any company could become a financial services company… imagine banking with your favorite brand!
