THE FUTURE OF FINTECH
brought to you by
WHAT GOT US HERE WON'T GET US THERE...
At Empire, we know that diverse and complex problems are best solved by diverse teams. Our pitch day will feature diverse teams solving complex problems across lending, payments, personal finance, wealth, capital markets, infrastructure, insurtech, and banking.
Only 8% of VC-funded startups have female founders
Just 3% of venture funding goes to Black and Latinx founders
THE STATISTICS FOR DIVERSITY IN STARTUP FUNDING ARE ABYSMAL
Empire is partnering with Mastercard because we both know that to reach its full potential, the future of FinTech must be diverse. Our mission for the 'Future of Fintech is Diverse' Pitch Day is to shine a light on FinTech founders solving important challenges, while increasing access to opportunity and capital for entrepreneurs who identify as female or BIPOC.
