This topic is particularly hot right now. We have a lot of diversity among the fintech landscape & want to build serious tools to disrupt the big financial players. 

We will have power networking sessions before and after the talks, a few demo tables if you would like one (please email me Looking for speakers (7 min slots/panel members) and startups to speed pitch for the future of Banks (3 mins slots).

Hopefully food and drinks - always looking for generous sponsors!

Kindest regards,



Hi Rebels,           Hope you are all enjoying a beautiful start to the autumn. We have outgrown the allocated space for the Meetup & Eventbrite numbers, so are looking to reschedule for mid November.  If any of your kind selves know of a free venue for around 150 people please let us know... dates from 16th-27th November inclusive.

We will have an extra special treat to apologise for having to move it. We still have room for speakers/panel & pitches/demo tables if you are interested - we would love to hear from you.

Please label emails #WeAreFintechSF if you want to get involved. We have found a lot of success in London with holding [hot topic] events, our next one is [Cyber Security] & one in January for [Insurance tech] if you are keen to work with us on those... please get in contact.

A couple of shout outs WeWork are holding a Halloween Party for those of you who are celebrating
