We are a group of students who care about disruptive financial innovation
Our backgrounds range across many different industries and countries around the globe but we are all passionate about financial innovation. The opportunity for new technologies, products, and business models to disrupt the current financial services ecosystem excites us. The MIT FinTech Club gives us a platform to share our excitement.
Here is the current leadership team of our club (click on the pictures to learn more about us):
We are supported by a number of MIT organizations
Our work would not be possible without the unwavering support of the MIT community and the organizations that make up our institution. We are particularly grateful to the following organizations for their contributions and encouragement.
The MIT Innovation Initiative: Finance Track
What is the Finance Initiative launched by the Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship?
The Finance Initiative has a clear objective: Raise awareness among students about the wave of technological disruption the Finance world is currently living and how this is creating multiple opportunities for innovators to dramatically change how people and companies manage their financial lives.

In order to fulfill this vision, the initiative comprises several initiatives during Spring 15 and the Academic Year 15-16: Creation of a MIT Finance Innovation Club, development all along the academic year of a Financial Innovation Speaker Series, yearly Fintech Innovation Conference and a Fintech Prize under the 100K MIT Business Plan Competition umbrella.
