WHAT IS FINTECH WEEK
Fintech Week Silicon Valley is a series of events that celebrate Fintech Innovation and Silicon Valley's disproportionate role in changing the way financial services serve people.
We launched Fintech Week in 2014, in London and we're now bringing the event to Silicon Valley. We run several events during Fintech Week, but we also work with partners that run events during the week as well. Discover, connect and get involved.
OUR FIRST, SECOND & FOURTH
Though 2017 marks our first Fintech Week in Silicon Valley, it's not our first event in the area. In 2016 we ran Blockchain San Francisco. We loved the area so much we decided to return with a bigger event. Silicon Valley is the 4th location of Fintech Week. Other cities include, London, Tel Aviv, Chicago (New York will be the 5th). We bring together senior figures in finance, tech, government, venture capital and start-ups into a room and let the magic happen. Conferences, meetups, workshops, a hackathon and an e xhibition all make up Fintech Week.
WHY WE'RE DIFFERENT.
FAST PACED: We keep the talks short/interesting & networking long. Panels last 30 minutes, keynotes 20, and demo/intros 10. Plenty of networking time is built into each day. This is not a traditional corporate event.
ECOSYSTEM: The people in the room are quality people. We take an ecosystem approach, which means we actively attract innovators, large firms, VCs, academics, government officials, press & start-ups. Having all the right people in the room makes for interesting chemistry.
NO HARD SELL ON STAGE: We create an environment that's great for making connections, not sales pitches. We have no problem with selling. We want you to sell more, we just prefer that it happens organically through networking
