We just released the PR for BarCampBankSF2. Please re-blog, re-twit, re-send, …

Dear Innovators,

It’s been a year since we had the first BarCampBankSF at the UC Berkeley campus — and given the current state of the economy, the collapse of the stock markets, the credit crunch hitting the global markets and the issuing severe slowdown of activity — the timing couldn’t be better for a second BarCampBankSF.

BarCampBank aims at bringing together the Bay Area’s smartest technologists and industry insiders from all over the world for a great day of networking to discuss the impact of emerging technologies in the Banking and Financial Services space. BarCampBankers will present projects, confront ideas and participate in lively conversations around the innovations in the Banking and Finance world. If you are an innovator, a technology disruptor or a professional in the banking and finance industry we’d love to have you join the debate and share in the experience.

We believe that innovation happens in any economy. We’d love to hear your ideas and share how your organization or institution is doing to ease the financial mess we are in right now.


The BarCampBankSF Team.

BarCamp Bank San Francisco 2 coming in 2009

BarCampBank logo

The 2nd edition BarCampBank San Francisco will take place on Saturday April 25 and April 26 2009 on Treasure Island.

BarCampBankSanFrancisco (BCBSF) is like a day long version of going out to lunch with a bunch of really smart people who share your passion for finance and innovation.

It’s designed to foster discussions on the future of financial services, particularly related to banking. The program is informal and the sessions are created the morning of the event, based on what participants want to discuss. This helps keep the agenda relevant and also allows people to more easily connect with those who have similar interests.

There will be folks attending from startups, financial services companies and the media.

You can register to BarCampBankSF2 here.
