ABOUT DC FINTECH WEEK

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.
