Chicago FinTech Innovators Launch Party
Thu, May 19 at 5:00 PM,Chicago, IL
Celebrate the launch of the FinTEx Innovator series, a bi-monthly profile of innovators and innovative companies in the Chicago FinTech ecoystem.
FinTEx Chicago (short for Financial Technology Exchange) is a collaboration between leading players in financial services and technology to expand Chicago’s role as a center of innovation. While Chicago has a storied history in financial services innovation and there are many exciting things happening in Chicago right now, the city is viewed as being on the periphery with New York, London and Silicon Valley; even companies in Chicago tend to look elsewhere for potential partners and collaborators not realizing what’s happening next door.
FinTEx Chicago fosters the development of a business cluster focused on FinTech and FinServ in Chicago. Participating companies of all sizes take advantage of the power of adjacency, increase productivity and innovate.
Our objectives are to:
Promote collaboration and business between companies in the region
Stimulate innovation and new company creation
Retain local talent, especially from universities, and attract others to the region
