Description

The Make It In Brooklyn FinTech Pitch Contest showcases a top selection of NYC startups working to make the financial world a more frictionless and efficient place. New York City is the finance capital of the world, where people are working on innovative ways to solve tough problems. You'll hear from FinTech startups who are transforming how we trade and live.

Five finalists will pitch to a panel of judges. One winner will take home $5,000, a guaranteed meeting with the Entrepreneur's Roundtable Accelerator investment team, and free legal services from the Brooklyn Law Incubator and Policy Clinic (BLIP).
