What could be more apposite than a virtual fintech conference? After all, digital technologies, including those related to finance, are part and parcel of the immense virtual world known as the internet. Without digital tech, it would be impossible for the Internet to even exist — and vice versa. So it should come as no surprise to entrepreneurs, investors and others to discover that this year the annual Fintech & Funding Conference, hosted by the National Crowdfunding & Fintech Association (“NCFA”) in conjunction with the Toronto Finance International (“TFI”), has a virtual interactive agenda. The online event — FFCON20 DIGITAL — will take place every Thursday afternoon at 2 p.m. ET from July 9 through Aug. 27.

For each of the eight weeks, the event will focus on a different fintech theme. A global lineup of fintech’s finest will discuss their projects, as well as the latest trends in the space. Attendees will be treated to presentations from a number of notable companies and enjoy ample opportunity to network and engage with peers and presenters.

Since its debut in 2015, FFCON has been providing a platform for pioneers and innovators in the fintech space to share new ideas and insights with each other. The gathering has also developed into an important crucible in the fintech space, catalyzing and facilitating crucial relationships between entrepreneurs and investors. It’s no wonder, then, that FFCON has turned out to be one of Canada’s top tech-networking forums. This year’s FFCON20 DIGITAL is likely to be no different, for the overarching theme of the eight-week event is RISE.

The FFCON series of conference has, year after year, drawn professionals from around the world. Attendees can expect to meet and greet influential figures from diverse fields, including AI, blockchain and crypto, capital markets, digital banking, payments, peer-to-peer finance and wealth management. Participants find themselves in an environment designed to spur growth in the Canadian fintech industry and bring its markets to life.

FFCON event organizers believe that when open-minded and innovative professionals gather together in a convivial environment that fosters discussion and the sharing of ideas, opportunities naturally follow. As such, FFCON offers participants a wealth of opportunity to develop new leads, discover new market channels and forge partnerships around innovation, technology and financing outcomes.
