Fintech Fridays

Welcome to Fintech Fridays.  We are a group of tech fanatics that believe fintech is everything and will only become more so in the future.  Our group on Clubhouse has 40,000+ members who would agree.

Every Friday morning at 0800 PST / 1100 EST / 1600 GMT we host a live chat with a founder, cover some of the latest financing rounds, and discuss emerging business models.  The conversations we host cover most all in fintech, from digital assets, payments, banking, asset management, investing, compliance, to APIs.

We hope you join the conversation, and grab your coffee or beer (depending on your timezone).   Additionally, feel free to reach out to one of the hosts if you do not have an invite to the app, sometimes we have extras.   

Only on Clubhouse.

To access, go to the app (click here), follow a host, and join the club ‘FinTech Fridays’ to participate. You can reach out to a host for a free invite.

Each session is one hour.
