We would guess that even those of you who closely follow Boston FinTech trends were surprised and wildly pleased to learn from Jim Smith's survey of annual venture financing for FinTech start-ups in the Hub that we had crossed the $1 billion level. It's a watershed moment for entrepreneurs building amazing FinTech companies in Boston and follows the upward sloping global trendline. At this exciting time, we can think of no better professionals to kick off our 2019 Boston FinTech meet-up series and discuss these trends and what it means to you then F Prime Partner and CoFounder of the FinTech Sandbox, David Jegen and moderator Sal Ternullo from KPMG’s Emerging Tech Risk practice.
David leads F Prime's firm’s early-stage tech fund. He is focused on FinTech and data analytics and has led investments in Kensho (acquired by S&P Global), FutureAdvisor (acquired by BlackRock), Flywire, Cloudant (acquired by IBM), Toast, EVEN Financial, Quovo (acquired by Plaid just this week!) and Axoni. David was a co-founder of Sensoria, Inc. and VP of Services at Into Networks, a Fidelity Ventures and Venrock-backed company acquired by Softricity. He is deeply thoughtful, globally regarded and tremendous friend of the Boston FinTech community.
Please join us for this intimate and in-depth Fireside Chat with David and Sal. We are looking forward to an evening of learning and networking with you! Doors will open at 6:00 for light bite and drinks with the chat kicking off at 6:30 p.m. We will follow with audience Q&A and more networking.
