As a flagship fintech conference and a landmark MIT event, this year’s MIT FinTech Conference is expected to be one of the biggest yet with over 1,000 attendees dialing in from all over the globe. The extensive speaking agenda covers everything from the more traditional aspects of fintech, such as digital banking and payments, to the more up-and-coming aspects of fintech which intersect with things like entertainment, media, and sustainability. Such panels are comprised of a stellar roster of speakers, including Amy Nauiokas (Founder & CEO of Anthemis), Terry Angelos (Global Head of FinTech at Visa), Tom Duncan (Head of Insurance and Wealth at Grab), Hester Peirce (SEC Commissioner), Marcus Cobb (Founder & CEO of Jammber), and more. In addition to learning all about different innovations within fintech, the conference provides an intimate setting for networking with likeminded professionals as well as career development opportunities in the form of a resume book shared with potential employers and event sponsors.
Held in conjunction with the conference is our Worldwide Startup Pitch Competition, which is currently welcoming applications! The pitch competition will be held in front of our large, global audience and a judging panel of industry experts to win more than US$30,000 in non-dilutive equity!
