After 2 super successful editions of FinTech Junction annual conferences, and one more on the way (on June 27, 2019), FinTech Junction’s community has been growing and blooming.

The pace in which FinTech is changing and disrupting the financial industry has led us to the conclusion that convening once a year is just not enough.

So, on January 30, will gather to have an end of year sum up meeting and exchange ideas of where 2019 will take us.

We invite you to FinTech Junction’s meetup to connect with the members of this vibrant community, keep the conversation going and prepare for yet another exciting year ahead. Tasty snacks and great drinks will make up for a pleasurable meeting you do not want to miss!!!
