About The Event

Driven by Benzinga Global FinTech Award demand, Benzinga is excited to announce expanded coverage of the international FinTech revolution. We’re coming to San Francisco on September 28th for our inaugural Benzinga FinTech Summit. Come see the newest A.I., Machine Learning, Deep Learning, and Blockchain tools being used to automate and revolutionize the world as we know it.

Why Attend?

Do NOT attend if you want the same old, boring, stuffy conference. Attendees will have the opportunity to network with Founders, C-Suite executives, directors of the newest and hottest FinTech companies, brokerages, banks, quants, hedge funds, VCs, and more. One half party, the other half business development – this is where deals will be made and partnerships forged.

“Downright Upbeat, Innovative, Great Food, Lots of Great Connections and only ONE day!”
– Stan Bokov, Co-Founder, COO of TradingView

“Certainly one of the best data events…Strongly geared towards networking and meeting new vendors.”
– Arienne Byrne, Alternative Data, Citadel

“There is no event on the street that brings together the diverse group of innovators, investors
and media.”
– Steve Ehrlich, CEO, Tradier

“I met my business partner at this event and went on to found ChartYourTrade.”
– Mike Lamothe, Founder, ChartYourTrade
