Planning to attend Money20/20 next week? Together with content producer BrightTALK, we’ll be hosting a red carpet event Sunday evening for industry CEOs, CCOs and tastemakers. What happens in Vegas may stay in Vegas, but what happens in Fintech changes everything. At least, according to Eric.
You may have met Eric before. He’s Managing Director here at Vested, overseeing much of our new business work. He’s also CEO of Vested’s venture capital arm, Vested Ventures. You may not know that he’s a huge fan of panda bears, an exceptional gardener and chef, is Vested’s in-house tsunami expert, and the face of BrightTALK’s breakout series “Focus on Fintech.”
He’s kind of a big deal.
Sunday’s party celebrates the launch of the second season of “Focus on Fintech,” and Eric will be interviewing industry personalities on-site for a special Money20/20 recap and look ahead to future seasons of the show.
The first season of “Focus on Fintech” was a huge success, featuring interviews with executives from micro-investing platform Acorns, digital banking tool Moven, robo-advisor qplum, powerhouse Ritholtz Wealth Management and more. Did you miss it? Check out this recap below:
The second season follows the life of a fintech – from ideation and identifying the right environment for an idea to thrive, to financing (from Aunt Sue or an angel investor), to scaling and a potential sale or IPO. The first two episodes are out and you can check them out here and here. And you can register to be notified when the other episodes go live.
