Sponsor of the challenge

Carolina Fintech Hub

With a unique combination of banks, Fintech startups, and talent, the Carolinas provide a rich ecosystem for companies and individuals looking to build, learn or grow in the field.


Aside from being focused on the Fintech ecosystem of North and South Carolina, the CFH is focusing its programming and investments at the intersection of Fintech and incumbent financial institutions. With tens of thousands of startups and new workforce entrants deciding where they should put down roots, the CFH will make the case that choosing the Carolinas not only means there will be a complete support ecosystem at their disposal, but also the ability to partner with incumbent financial institutions – increasing their odds of success dramatically.
