About Us

Bank Innovation is produced by Royal Media Group, a media company that has served the financial services industry since 1995. The site offers industry professionals a unique forum for sharing information, reading news, posting blogs, and e-networking with colleagues.

Bank Innovation tracks and encourages innovation in banking. We record innovation successes and failures at a site at which bankers of common ilk and dreams can come together to share ideas and insights. Irreverent? Maybe. But our goals are true: to make banking better.

Innovation Insights | split(able): Mary Foden

Thanks to generous donations from Cisco, PayAir, XIUS, and Appcelerator we were able to provide complimentary registrations to several early-stage startups focused on the social, mobile and payments space.

Without these donations these startups would not have been able to afford attending and networking with the senior executives and providing an insight as to their unique and innovative ideas.

The Americas conference will continue the tradition providing even more start-ups with visibility through the Social Mobile Payments November event.

If you are start-up working on solutions for the social, mobile and payments ecosystem we’d like to feature your company at our event. If you are a benefactor and would like to sponsor a startup and help spur innovation please contact us.

Mary Foden’s split(able) was one of the startups that benefited from the contributions made for our inaugural event in April.

Mary Foden ~ Co-Founder split(able)

“Social Mobile Payments was outstanding. It felt more like a well-organized meetup than a traditional conference, which made it incredibly easy to meet and build personal relationships with all the established leaders and trailblazers who were there.”

“Thanks for embracing startups, and for letting us jump onstage for an impromptu demo! This is the one conference we can’t wait to come back to next year.”
