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 has 40,000+ members who would agree.

Every Friday morning at 08:00 PST / 11:00 EST / 16:00 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.   

On Twitter Spaces.

To access the event, go to the Twitter app, go to “Spaces” section and search for “Fintech Fridays”, and click remind me on the event and join the ‘FinTech Fridays‘ community to keep in the loop. You can also follow the hosts’ Twitter accounts below as we all share the events each week!

Each session is one hour.

During each session we encourage listeners to come and ask questions to the founders, although there’s no obligation.
