When I am asked why we chose to expand in Atlanta I tell people it is simple: Atlanta is the home and future of financial technology innovation across the globe. Full stop. Nowhere else combines the diversity of talent, higher education institutions, and corporate leadership all designed to foster creative, innovative and entrepreneurial FinTech solutions. I’m incredibly proud of the work that FinTech Atlanta has accomplished in bringing together the resources and leaders to the table to build a truly global digital payments and financial technology presence in this area and I look forward to continued efforts in these areas.

Work Groups

We are a unique collection of companies and organizations influencing policy and industry development to create the best global business climate for financial technology and commerce enabled companies. To do this we have four active focus areas, driven by volunteers in the ecosystem, to help each accomplish our objectives

Our objective is to expand the FinTech skilled workforce to support industry growth in Atlanta. This includes working to cultivate new talent and attract available skilled talent—right people, right skills, right time, right place, right cost.

  • Leverage outbound and local recruiting missions and events
  • Promote and facilitate internships and scholarships
  • Design and implement core FinTech curriculum and credentials, both at the undergraduate level and for those seeking a career transition

Our objective is to enhance our FinTech innovation community through a range of focused initiatives. We work across the ecosystem with leading corporations, investors and service providers to connect local startups and early-stage FinTech companies with the resources they need to succeed.

  • Innovation matchmaking programs (corporations + startups + investors)
  • Corporate FinTech challenge portal
  • FinTech accelerator programs

Our objective is to develop and implement public policy initiatives that support Georgia and metro Atlanta financial technology industry and job growth.

  • Be a policy resource for elected officials at all levels of government
  • Advance federal policies, state and local support for talent, innovation and investment creation
  • Host legislative events
