Our mission.

To facilitate Chicago’s fintech ecosystem, ensuring that wherever you may land in the community, you’re getting the right access, exposure, and education you need.

WE AREN’T HERE TO PULL THE STRINGS. Remember, you’re in control. Chicago’s fintech community is brimming with talent and expertise, and it’s our job to connect you to the opportunities that best fit your needs, not make your every move for you. Access investors, get educated about fintech, get a mentor or be a mentor, and come talk to us about where you want to go.

It’s about building a community, a hub where individuals interested in FinTech can learn and contribute. It starts with awareness and education and leads to building solid businesses that grow and prosper. By bringing in startups, contacts at large companies, and investors looking for opportunities, we connect the ecosystem so it grows and develops.
