    Interesting startups, interesting albeit incomplete approaches to making finance accessible to people.

      I think their business models and target markets were well defined. They aren't building platforms that make finance more accessible to people but rather making finance easier to understand and helping people make smarter decisions when investing their capital. There are other companies focused on making finance accessible.

      Isn't it a difference in semantics at that point? What does it mean to make finance more "accessible"? If a tool lets users invest with more ease and knowledge, doesn't that make finance more "accessible"?

    Great event, really enjoyed the product/tech focus vs. the typical pitches

    Appreciated giving the presenting companies more substantive time for their presentations and q&a unlike other events that cram as many companies as they can.
