Journey of a Regnopreneur
Kick-start the week of FinTech with RegPac Revolution on Regnovation.Robo where we meet a nice cosy bunch of like-minded audience to talk about RegTech and Artificial Intelligence. Enjoyed a session of Fireside Chat with RegPac Founder, Ms. Mona Zoet where we discussed various hot topics of interest ranging from basic RegTech definition, application of AI/ML in RegTech, Cynopsis' business model, Initial Coin Offerings, and how does success look like.

What a week of intense #fintech, #regtech, #blockchain, #artificialintelligence, #identity immersion we had at the 2nd Singapore FinTech Festival.
