Mission

The Chicago Booth part-time Fintech Club aims to forge a community for Evening and Weekend MBA students around the disruptive and revolutionary FinTech industry by connecting them with researchers, entrepreneurs, investors, and stakeholders in local and global FinTech communities through various events with an emphasis on education, career development, networking, and entrepreneurial support.

Do you want to be at the forefront of the disruption of financial services? Have you heard about bitcoin and blockchain but want to dig deeper into cryptocurrency? Are you convinced that banking/investing/insurance/lending will be disrupted soon and you want to be ready for it?  Well, join us in the Booth Fintech Club!

We are thrilled for the opportunity to deliver Fintech content, knowledge, networking, and more to the Booth community! We are partnering with our faculty advisor Professor Luigi Zingales, the Polsky Center, innovators, established firms, and other organizations to engage everyone from the FinTech-curious to FinTech enthusiasts.

Our group is here to help you participate in the new fintech movement!
