FinTech is one of the hottest sectors in the startup world. However, few have seen how much it has changed the developing world. From near-instant, mobile-only loans to biometric technologies connecting over a billion people to digital payments, emerging markets are starting to leapfrog the innovations we see locally.

Join us, DFS Lab, for a conversation about FinTech in emerging markets as we take a deep dive into the developing world’s FinTech trends. Hear from our team about the innovations we’re seeing, the growth of emerging market startup ecosystems, and what we think could make its way back to Seattle. Learn more about DFS Lab’s accelerator and how you can use your own technology experience to make an impact across the world.

Connect with both global and local experts before and after. Doors open at 6:30pm, event starts at 7pm, and we’ll hang around for a beer and conversation until 8:30pm. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn about the most recent trends in technology and connect with the foremost experts in the field. We can’t wait to meet you and learn about what you’re working on.

DFS Lab is an accelerator for FinTech innovations in emerging markets. We are supported by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Learn more on our websiteFacebook, and Twitter!
