Startup: Navigating the FinTech World as a Black Startup Business presented by JPMorgan Chase & Co.
 Launching, funding, and scaling a financial technology ("FinTech") start-up can be a complex and frustrating experience.  For founders of color, the process can be made all the more difficult by barriers to inclusion and equity in the tech ecosystem. How can aspiring start-ups address these challenges, build successful fintech businesses, and bring about a more inclusive industry? JPMorgan Chase & Co., in partnership with the Financial Health Network (formerly CFSI), launched the Financial Solutions Lab which hosts an annual challenge for social entrepreneurs to identify, test, and bring to scale promising innovations that address the financial needs of low- and moderate-income Americans. During this session, attendees will learn more about the Financial Solutions Lab and hear practical advice and takeaways from Lab participants and alumni who have successfully navigated the FinTech world.
