Creating a robust environment for the Fintech community in the Carolinas is core to the Carolina Fintech Hub (CFH) mission. When we began talking about how to fulfill that objective, the operating committee kept coming back to the importance of creating a fabric that unifies the community and enables all stakeholders in the community a way to find and connect with local talent and companies. While physical, in-person events are one way to do that, we felt strongly that the community must take a virtual form, too. This week, as we announce the formation of the Carolina Fintech Hub, we’re also rolling out some exciting new ways to connect our community:
With the support from MEDICI, we have provided a directory of companies in the Carolinas that operate in the Fintech space. Our goal is to provide better visibility to the companies with a presence in our community. If your company should be on the list, please use the form on the companies page to submit your information to be added.
We have provided a member directory to simplify finding other individuals interested in Fintech in the community. Registering for the Fintech hub will add your name to the directory. We anticipate adding more capabilities to the member directory to better enable members to network and learn about events occurring in the community.
Newsletter & Social Media
Individuals who are interested in learning about Fintech news and events in the Carolinas may provide their email address to receive periodic updates. The newsletter, combined with our social media outlets on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn, provide new ways to stay abreast of local Fintech activities and developments.
Slack is an instant messaging tool that brings team communication together, giving everyone a shared workspace where conversations are organized and accessible. Many companies are already using Slack for their internal team communication and we felt it would be a powerful way to enable real-time communication among members of the Carolina Fintech community.
