For the first time we will be doing a fintech showcase. First and foremost we look to give four individual startups an opportunity to demo their technology to group, get feedback and help connect them with people who can help further their respective ventures.
The format will be as follows
- each startup will get 10 minutes
- will consist of a live demo of their product/service
- will have Q&A afterwards
We will also run a quick panel Q&A after the showcase where each of the founders/presenters will be available to take questions from the audience relating to starting, growing, funding or taking to market a fintech startup venture.
I would like to thank StockStats, one of the companies who will be presenting, who both brought this initiative to us and agreed to providing sponsorship to help put it on. This money will be used to build a member website so we can provide far greater visibility to the fintech startup scene here in the bay area.
