Event description

Description

FinTech startups face many challenges other companies don't. FinTech entrepreneurs have to be wary of regulations, security, and a lot of competition. FinTech startups also have higher costs (and higher valuations) and sometimes have a difficult to explain value proposition.

Through all those hurdles, we've seen many FinTech startups come and make our lives better by offering services like loans, credit cards, payments, investments and digital currencies.

Join us as we find out how to build and launch a FinTech startup with some of the most experienced entrepreneurs in NYC in the FinTech space! We'll discuss

  • Hiring a team for a FinTech startup
  • Testing and launching an MVP
  • How to build momentum for your FinTech startup
  • Rules & regulations to follow
  • Helpful tools to use
  • Finding the correct target market for your product
  • Investors and ways to get funding
  • And much more!
