Here’s the twist 🔀

Gallery Access

15+ teams compete in a 7-week design competition to solve a challenge the FinTech industry is facing. After submitting their solutions into a gallery for you to review, they're invited to an exclusive virtual FinTech Switch meetup with you!

Virtual Meetup

This virtual meetup isn't like a typical career fair. Using Remo, a virtual conference tool, students will stay at the same tables. You're free to move (virtually) from table to table, chatting individually with students who competed in the design competition. 

There's no limit to how many representatives can attend the virtual meet-up.
