About Us

FinTech is shaping the future of finance and global banking with technology. Financial Institutions want to evolve, but need help incorporating FinTech into their business model. Technology professionals want to help Financial Institutions get ready for Finance 2.0, but often lack adequate business context. Entrepreneurs are trying to disrupt existing business models, but need help turning their ideas into viable products and/or solutions.

This is where we come in.

Courses and programs for different needs

The FinTech School delivers practical training on the latest FinTech sector, entrepreneurship and product development topics to individuals, institutions, and entrepreneurs globally. People looking to stay updated on industry trends will find our courses helpful. Those who wish to innovate in this space will find our comprehensive programs or our onsite boot-camp like training more appropriate.

Practical training by practicing entrepreneurs

It is not an academic institution. The FinTech School was founded by FinTech entrepreneurs and financial services professionals who have been there and done that. They have decades of financial industry experience, spanning traditional firms like Goldman Sachs and BlackRock. Our team has also founded FinTech startups which have graduated from industry leading programs like Y-combinator and have launched products now being followed by venture capitalists.

Ecosystem support

We are a part of a larger FinTech innovation ecosystem, FinTech Portfolio, which augments our education with research, technical resources, and mentoring (incubator and accelerator) support. This enables entrepreneurs, individuals and institutions to move from ‘knowledge’ to ‘execution.’
