22nd Sep 2022 • Uncategorised
Mass Fintech Hub is driven by the mission to make Massachusetts the world’s leading fintech hub.
We accomplish this by building a collaborative partnership that stimulates fintech activity and connections, creates investing opportunities, and aligns key stakeholders for a better entrepreneurial environment that supports fintech startups in all development stages in Massachusetts.
There’s no better place to foster these connections than at Boston Fintech Week.
Presented by FinTech Sandbox, Boston Fintech Week is a grassroots global fintech event that will bring together the global fintech community with luminary keynotes, panel discussions, networking receptions, community-led events, and discussions on the latest advancements in financial technology.
From industry leaders to investors and founders, we asked stakeholders from across the Mass Fintech Hub to share why they’re attending Boston Fintech Week, and share their must-see events on this year’s program.
