Event Details

Fintech innovation is bursting in the NYC startup community and around the country. Fintech companies raised more than $39 billion in venture capital in 2018 (up 15% compared to 2017), while funding levels surged 120%. Although funding levels slowed down in 2019, fintech startups still raised over $24 billion in venture capital Q1-Q3.

In this boom, New York has become a hub of fintech startups changing how we handle insurance, loans, payments, investments, and more.

That’s why we’re thrilled to announce Fintech by Stacklist, a new monthly event series just for fintech enthusiasts.
