[edit] The BarCampBank Pyramid

BarCampBank can be seen as a three-level Pyramid:

  1. a place of exchanges - where people interested in innovation in the world of banking and finance can communicate.
  2. a think-tank - where white-papers and structured documents can be produced collaboratively to shed light on the innovations and new business models that technology can create in the world of banking and finance.
  3. an incubator - where innovative projects in the world of banking and finance can find a knowledgeable community and structured thinking to assess their potential and eventually mechanisms helping financing the most promising initiatives.

In this view, each level strongly supports the success of higher ones and the aim of BarCampBank is to grow contributions at every level in an open and active recruitment process toward potential new members.
