Fintech Venture Day New York

IE Business School is excited to invite you to Fintech Venture Day NYC. Join us for a unique program which will explore the development of the second wave of Fintech and the new products and challenges it has produced. How are investors responding and reacting to these developments and what do they see as the most interesting and intriguing in terms of products, technology and strategies for penetrating non-Fintech savvy consumers? In addition, we will invite a limited number of Fintech Startups to compete in a pitch-slam competition in front of an expert panel of judges. Winning founders will receive a 100% scholarship to a course at IE in Madrid focusing on Scaling and Venture Capital with travel expenses included.  At this event, we will be joined by Santander Innoventures, Citi Ventures, Vestigo Ventures and Route 66 Ventures. To conclude the event we will host a networking cocktail featuring fine Spanish food and wine. IE Business School has organized 50+ Venture Days around the world. Most recently Shanghai, Sao Paulo, Guatemala City, Warsaw, Mexico City and Madrid assisting start-ups in securing 20+ Million in funding.
