Having just left Sydney, Australia where the financial technology startup community meets every other thursday morning around 8am in the downtown core I thought it would be great to set something similar up in Toronto.
Just a coffee house or similar space where entrepreneurs, investors and those in the financial services industry can meet informally.
Looks like we have 145 members here - perhaps we can set something up for mid-July.
New technology is disrupting Finance in every area - Banking, Payments, Multi asset trading, Brokerage, Investment, Money Management, Funding, E-Commerce. It is also making Finance easily accessible to everyone. The FinTech meetup puts on financial technology meetup events that take place in Toronto and are designed to connect Toronto based decision makers in the financial sector with new and innovative financial technologies. The meetups feature industry leaders, thought leaders, and financial technology entrepreneurs as speakers and discussion leaders addressing key financial technology needs, applications, innovations, issues and offering excellent networking opportunities. We are all about making connections to connect financial industry decision makers with new and innovative financial technologies and to discuss key industry issues.
