Culture is the backbone of innovation

Whether it’s dealing with an extreme disruption like COVID-19 or just to be more effective competing every day, banks benefit from new ideas to streamline current operations and to spot new business opportunities.

Vanessa Colella, chief innovation officer at Citi and head of its Citi Ventures equity investing arm, talks about how financial institutions can — and why they should — embrace a culture that encourages and rewards innovation.
