What is FinTech?
Fintech is a portmanteau of finance and technology. In 2020 many businesses use tech to enhance or automate financial services and processes. The term is a broad and rapidly growing industry serving both consumers and businesses. From mobile banking and insurance to cryptocurrency and investment apps, fintech has broad applications.
The Fintech industry is huge. As of writing, there are 41 VC-backed fintech unicorns worth a combined $154.1B.
A driving factor is that many traditional banks and vanguard institutions are supporters of the tech overhaul, actively investing in, acquiring or partnering with fintech startups- all in the name of moving the industry forward and staying relevant. You can be a part of that change.
