RTP180: FinTech

February 15 @ 5:00 pm - 7:15 pm


About RTP180Innovation. Education. Industry. These are powerful angles—and what Research Triangle Park is known for. At RTP180, speakers from our founding Universities, Park companies and the North Carolina community at-large, are called upon to speak passionately and authentically about what matters to them. The twist? They must do it in 5 minutes or less!

We ask our speakers to be intentional with their 300 seconds on stage. What perspective of their industry are they able to share? What are their passions? What would our community be surprised to learn? What case studies in North Carolina are cutting edge?

This month we are bringing in the experts to present their unique take on FinTech. Our speakers will share new research that builds on our understanding of the world, it’s people and the interactions we have. Join us to learn about the cutting-edge finance technology, trends, and innovations coming out of the Triangle.

Prior to the start of the show, join us at 5:00 p.m. for refreshments, networking, and a chance to jump in the Frontier RTP Money Machine to collect as much Frontier Swag Bucks as you can.Local financial organizations and businesses will be tabling during this time. We’re excited to have the Shoeboxed join us to show off their tech-enabled financial planning software. You also won’t want to miss an opportunity to talk with Southeast Women in Fintech.

When you come early, we will have complimentary popcorn, beer from Fullsteam RTP, wine selections from RTP Uncorked, and spirit-free drinks.
