The MIT Entrepreneurship & FinTech Integrator

A 10-Day FinTech Startup Bootcamp
August 22-31, 2019  |  Hong Kong

It’s not a bootcamp if it’s not intense.

MEFTI (MIT Entrepreneurship & FinTech Integrator) is a FinTech adventure in Hong Kong that will blow you away. 

This is a 10-day FinTech startup bootcamp for MIT and Hong Kong students who are ready to change the world. Students from MIT and universities in Hong Kong will form teams, tackle real-life problems with impact, and build a FinTech startup with a viable business model.

In this intensive, immersive experience, you will:

  • Learn about emerging trends across different FinTech sectors
  • Gain insights on how the financial services industry has been transformed
  • Understand how frontier technologies, including distributed ledger technology and artificial intelligence, are redefining business processes and changing the future of industries
  • Understand the jurisdictional advantages of Hong Kong as a leading FinTech hub from regulatory, technology and domain perspectives
  • Visit emerging startups and companies and interact with seasoned industry executives from the Pearl River Delta
  • Immerse in a comprehensive entrepreneurship program and build a viable business plan and proof of concept prototype to present your FinTech idea to a panel of judges and audience

We cover travel and program expenses, but don’t let that be the reason you apply. MEFTI is not edu-tourism–it is a life-changing experience. Join us if you are ready to unleash your inner FinTech entrepreneur.
