Detroit has all the ingredients to become the next major fintech hub. The city is home to several major financial institutions and a legacy of creating innovative products. Detroiters are inspired to build things that the rest of the world uses every day.
Earlier this year, Quicken Loans chairman Dan Gilbert said that Detroit could become "the fintech capital of the world." This group can be a step towards making that a reality.
This group can facilitate meetings between financial professionals, programmers, and all those excited in the opportunity to disrupt one of the largest industries in the world.
