This Week in Fintech (5/28)

Hello Fintech Friends,

We’re excited to share our new Builder Series, a campaign to highlight the builders behind the fastest-growing fintech companies. Think about the folks who rarely get the spotlight for their hard work, the builders who are behind the scenes - those are the people we want to amplify.

Know any great builders? We’re now taking nominations!

Please find another week of fintech financing events below.
