CHARLOTTE – After a successful first year in 2017, the Southeast Fintech Venture Conference is back for a full-day program highlighting the freshest innovations in fintech from companies throughout the region.
The event, taking place November 14 at Barings in downtown Charlotte, is organized and hosted by Queen City Fintech, a Charlotte-based accelerator that supports financial technology startups through mentoring, capital and connections. The six startups in the program’s ninth cohort will be showcasing their products and services at this year’s conference.
Over a dozen founders from Queen City Fintech’s partner portfolios and Carolina Fintech Hub will also showcase their startups in pitch sessions held in between the program’s keynotes, panels and meetings with investors and entrepreneurs.
The opening keynote will be delivered by Doug Lebda, founder of Charlotte-based consumer lending company LendingTree.
Two “mix and mingle” sessions will be held in the morning and afternoon, offering attending founders one-on-one meetings with investors.
