Innovation, collaboration, and investment in the right direction can redefine how we bank, pay, and play in this new digital era. The Detroit FinTech Challenge aims to break down the barriers to innovation in the financial sector and help to reinvent tomorrow. With many industries relying heavily on financial transactions, The Detroit FinTech Challenge wants to make an economic impact in Michigan by creating new and innovative financial technologies in leading industries. Our vision is to create a community of entrepreneurs and developers working on REAL problems, and creating REAL modular solutions that can eventually be monetized. The Detroit FinTech Challenge serves as a catalyst to drive a community in Detroit around FinTech, and engage all the stakeholders in this space.
