Bankers Fintech Council
CCG Catalyst Consulting with the Arizona Bankers Association, Colorado Bankers Association and Wisconsin Bankers Association have partnered to create the Bankers Fintech Council to spur economic growth and bring viable and promising fintech companies an opportunity to work with a variety of financial institutions. The council meetings allow banks to meet, utilize or invest in new fintech related companies. Our bank participants can:
- Partner with the fintech
- Do a Proof of Concept (POC) with the fintech
- License the product / solution
- For our international fintech’s an avenue for them to enter the US marketplace.
These meetings are an opportunity for them to meet various banks in one setting. Each fintech has approximately 50 minutes to meet and discuss their product / service with the meeting participants. What the fintech is looking for – partner, customer, investor – we have no restrictions. The meeting is an open platform for all parties to ask questions. We describe it as a cross between shark tank and speed dating.
