Colombian Credit Union Professionals to Take Digital ‘Deep Dive’ in Silicon Valley2023-05-25
Professionals in the Colombian credit union and cooperative sector will soon be embarking on a three-day engagement in Silicon Valley to identify opportunities to advance the digital transformation of their organizations.
Fecolfin, World Council’s direct member organization in Colombia, recently announced its 7th Silicon Valley Immersion, which will allow member credit union professionals to engage with experts in the first ecosystem for innovation and digital development in the world.
Silicon Valley, which includes the area between San Francisco and San Jose, California, has been characterized as a geographical space with enormous economic and business dynamism, oriented towards innovation, technology, investors and renowned universities, such as Stanford, and companies such as Hewlett Packard (HP), IBM, Google, Facebook, Uber, Netflix and WhatsApp, among others.
The Silicon Valley Immersion allows credit union representatives to discover a space for corporate, educational and investigative interaction. They will be treated to presentations by experts from some of the most important companies in the world, including programmers, engineers and investors, as well as professors from important universities.
By being introduced to the use of new methodologies and management processes developed in Silicon Valley, the participants will be able to broaden their perspectives and encourage the development of new ideas, projects and purposes at their own credit unions, helping to grow digital transformation in Colombia’s cooperative sector.
More than 100 Colombian cooperative professionals have participated in previous Silicon Valley Immersions through Fecolfin.
