Welcome to the Future of FinTech.
We are living in a time of intense digital disruption; from how you hail a cab, to where you stay on vacation, technology is fundamentally altering industries. The next frontier in this shifting landscape is financial technology, more commonly referred to as FinTech. According to a report by global consultancy, McKinsey & Co., "Banks could lose up to 60 per cent of their retail profits to nimble FinTech firms within the next decade."
Join us in supporting our local FinTech cluster to find its place on the global stage.
Building Vancouver's FinTech Cluster.
British Columbia is home to a vibrant FinTech cluster of close to 100 companies, nearly one-third of which are less than five years old. In light of this, we've designed a program to support FinTech companies that are growth-stage and beyond, and to connect them with financial institutions, investors, and partners.
The BC Tech FinTech Program is a combination of open activities available to the entire community, and curated experiences specific to growth-stage financial technology companies. The core areas of support include FinTech Days, coaching and expertise, as well as connections and community building.
