The Unbundling Effect: Who’s Next?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

What if the structure of the US as we now know it disappeared over the next decade and the so-called institutions were no more? Overpriced universities were no longer the epitome of education, cable companies no longer ruled the airwaves, banking was no longer conducted at a stuffy bank with cumbersome regulations and hotels were no longer central to the likes of Hilton, the Four Seasons, etc. These seemingly far-fetched ideas, are events that are slowly becoming a reality through the use of innovative technology and transparency through social media and online identity, combined with a new attitude among consumers and industry leaders.
This dual conversation will be between Fundera CEO Jared Hecht and GA co-founder Brad Hargreaves who are fueling this change and unbundling in two large industries – education and banking. They are shaping these industries to be more in line with what today’s consumer wants; transparency, efficiency, and no red tape.
