My Reflection Blog

Hi everyone! My name is Tharun and I am a Grade 11 student at Woburn CI. Today, I had the pleasure to attend Illuminate x MidtownTO’s regional conference. Here are my thoughts highlighting what I learned about Illuminates Conference.


  1. Fintech seemed to look like a company that knows each and every factor that can affect the innovation of finance whether it's positive or negative.

  2. Salim seemed to have be very passionate about fintech, and he said that it stood for financial technology, he also mentioned how oligopolies, bad UX/UI design and customer loyalty was the reason why banks are incapable of being more innovative.

  3. I enjoyed hearing the guest speakers talk about their past experiences, and their suggestions to following passions, and pathways to take to start a successful business

  4. Ill use the skills and experiences I learn from the conferences to help myself start a business
