Our first FinTech-themed Mass Innovation Nights was a huge success! This event brought us to District Hall in Boston's Seaport District once again. The room was buzzing with over 300 attendees who came to learn about the 13 FinTech startups.
MIN #102 was part of the first ever Boston FinTech Week, a week-long festival celebrating Boston's booming financial technology industry. Our event featured many amazing experts who lent their knowledge to guests and participating companies. Thomson Reuters Labs sent experts to talk about their incubator programs that are located around the globe. Envestnet | Yodlee came to talk about the massive scale of their financial data and analytic capabilities. Sensible Financial Planning and Management, one of the nation's top financial advisory firms, shared with attendees the great resources available on their website promoting financial literacy. There were many more experts present from FactSet, Scottish Development International, DCU FinTech Innovation Center, Distilled Analytics, FinTech Sandbox, and Haptitude Warrior Conference International.
Not only did #MIN102 trend number one on Twitter in Boston, but the State Treasurer, Deborah B. Goldberg, kicked off the night and shared with attendees her work promoting STEM education, financial literacy and closing the wage gap through her new Office of Economic Empowerment.
