DC Fintech Week – Virtual
October 19, 2020 - October 22, 2020
Join us this October for Washington DC’s fourth annual fintech policy and innovation dialogue. This year we are going virtual – enabling our event to connect with tens of thousands of fintech leaders beyond the beltway on a global scale.
From Amazon to Zcash – innovators describe their business and explain how their services intersect with markets to our audience of policymakers, market participants, and lawyers. Leading global regulators and lawmakers then join the conversation to share their unique perspective with the audience.
Ever since kicking off on the campus of Georgetown University Law Center in 2017, DC Fintech Week has had a simple objective: democratize information and allow everyone–from nonprofits and technologists to entrepreneurs and regulators–to engage one another in a meaningful dialogue about fintech and the future of finance. On each day, on every panel, the conference brings the best and the brightest to Washington DC for discussions spanning the fintech ecosystem: crowdfunding, online lending, cryptocurrencies, cybersecurity, AI, open banking and more. As such, it is one of the few panels open to the public where top officers from the BIS, US Treasury Department, and SEC are able to dialogue collectively with economists, Bitcoin traders, academics and digital infrastructure providers.
For 2020, the themes are “Making (or Breaking?) Money,” “Transformational Technologies,” “Demo Day” and “Inclusive Fintech.” The 2020 conference will again be run by Fintech Week’s founder, Georgetown law professor Chris Brummer.
