Join us on Thursday, February 15, 5:30pm -7:30pm for the official Detroit Fintech Challenge "Kickoff Information Session". The Detroit Fintech Challenge & Pitch Competition, happening April 6 & 7 at Techtown in Detroit, will bring together dozens of entrepreneurs, coders, developers and other creative minds from across the region to generate enduring solutions to the biggest challenges and major concerns in the financial, payment, banking, and insurance sectors. The Detroit Fintech Challenge will serve as a catalyst in the revitalization of Detroit by driving a community around Fintech Technologies, engaging all the stakeholders in this space, and creating new and innovative companies.

The winner will be eligible to receive a $50,000 investment and support services from Kyyba Innovations, as well as mentorship from the organization's extensive network. Additional cash and non-cash prizes will be awarded to three winners selected by the judges, and will be announced in the coming weeks. 

At the "Kickoff Information Session" on February 15th the Challenge Statements will be discussed along with an announcement of who the key partners/sponsors will be for the upcoming April 6 & 7 competition. The Challenge Statements are the guiding force of the Detroit Fintech Challenge, and are cultivated in collaboration with our corporate partners. Each statement addresses a broad area of concern as well as a few possible entry points for a technical solution. 

The Challenge "Kickoff Information Session" will also provide details on the competition, goals, rules & eligibility, and team formation. If you don't have a team and are interested in joining one, we'll help you make connections. Come socialize with people truly passionate about being a part of The Fintech Movement in Detroit! Learn more about the Detroit Fintech Challenge here: www.DetroitFintechChallenge.com
