This Week in Fintech - Fundraises (10/29)

This Week in Fintech - Fundraises (10/29)

Hello Fintech Friends,

A couple weeks ago, we announced our online fintech community at thisweekinfintech.com/community

Since we announced it, we’ve grown to over 5,000 members (with 200+ signing up in the last couple weeks) but this is just where our work begins!

There is so much that we could offer through our community: mentorship pairings, expert AMAs, a repository of fintech information, a fintech glossary, a directory of fintech people, best practice advice, anonymized operating data, etc.

What we build for the community depends on what you want. Have 5 minutes to share some ideas? Please tell us in our community survey what you’d want to see us build.

Upcoming Events:

Please find another week of fintech financing events below.



If you’re an early-stage startup founder raising equity or debt, we may be able to help - come check out our fund, The Fintech Fund (including a link to pitch us) and see our primer on how we make introductions to friendly VCs and debt providers.

Are you a fintech angel investor? Come join our syndicate.
