READY TO BUILD THE NEXT GROUNDBREAKING FINTECH STARTUP?

A 9-Day FinTech Startup Bootcamp

August 20-28, 2020  |  Online

 

MEFTI CONTINUES THIS SUMMER!

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

The MIT Entrepreneurship & FinTech Integrator is

a FinTech adventure that will catapult your skillsets! 

MEFTI is a FinTech venture-building bootcamp for MIT and Hong Kong students who are ready to make industry impact. Students from MIT and universities in Hong Kong will form teams, tackle real-world industry challenges, and build a FinTech startup with a viable business model. In this intensive 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 Greater Bay Area
  • 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!
