The CEMC was launched in 2016 and co-founded by Currency and The Alta Group to foster a community of leaders focused at the intersection of the equipment finance industry and financial technology.
Charles Anderson, CEMC Executive Director, and CEO of founding sponsor Currency commented, “It is amazing to witness an entire industry embracing the future and adopting tomorrow’s business practices. Over the years we’ve had front-row seats to this tectonic shift across industries. On the 14th, we’ll be discussing implementation and integration of both AI and blockchain – concepts that seemed foreign to our members just a few years ago are today at the core of what we know is possible.”
As in previous events, discussions will be kept private to encourage the free exchange of ideas among participants. The CEMC is a unique opportunity to reach an exclusive group of leaders and disruptors who will inspire each other to rethink and innovate their business practices.
Roundtable participants will stay at or near the Yale Club over the duration of the event and will participate in a series of discussions, presentations, Q&A sessions as well as casual networking opportunities.
