Happy New Year! For our first event of 2020, let's get together and discuss ways to grow our Pittsburgh fintech ecosystem. Bring your ideas and share how you'd like to see the community develop.
We'll be discussing topics like:
- What makes fintech innovation similar/different to other industries and who are the key stakeholders in Pittsburgh?
- What resources are necessary for entrepreneurs to start fintech businesses and develop banking partners and first customer relationships?
- What models have other cities used and found successful (big -> New York, SF, Charlotte - and Pittsburgh-sized -> Kansas City, Columbus)
- What opportunities is Pittsburgh uniquely positioned for ? (ex. combining Artificial Intelligence with financial services).
Towards the end of 2019, the research firm Findexable published their rankings of global fintech cities and regions. Regional rankings for the Americas is on slide 34. https://findexable.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/12/Findexable_Global-Fintech-Rankings-2020exSFA.pdf
