THE EMPIRE STORY:
WHY WE'RE HERE
Empire Startups was founded in 2011, when we began running the NYC FinTech Meetup. We’ve since grown to become the largest community of FinTech entrepreneurs, investors, and financial service professionals in the world with over 17,000 members.
At the heart of what we do is building community, and we continue to bring the startup community together each month in New York and San Francisco running the FinTech Meetups across both coasts. As FinTech has grown - so have we. We now run annual Empire FinTech Conferences in New York and San Francisco, and host FinTech Weeks in both cities. We accelerate innovation through the power of community and believe that when you bring smart, curious people together, great things can happen!
