FinTech

Our group's focus is communicating the recent advances of data and technology solutions in the financial services industry to students via workshops, presentations and other events. We are also responsible for organizing the FinTech Challenge @ HSG.

About us

We are the PG FinTech!

Our goal is it to bring interested students closer to the FinTech industry. In the beginning, we answer simple questions such as: What is FinTech? Who are the important players? How does the landscape look like in Switzerland?

In the following sessions we start taking a closer look at important topics, such as the block-chain technology, DLT or Machine Learning. For this we will also invite leading companies that have found fascinating use-cases.

Furthermore we organise access to relevant conferences and in the second semester we will organise the FinTech Challenge in cooperation with a corporate partner.

The fourth and last circle of our roadmap consists of a career night with inspiring FinTech companies!

Where?

For our usual sessions we meet at the University in the Makerspace!

The room is directly next to Mensa A!
