Fintech Drinks

Fintech Drinks is a meetup where we bring the community together to discuss the hottest topics in fintech.

Upcoming event:

Need for Speed: How RTR will change the fintech game

May 27th | 5 - 7 pm EST

Event Description

For the second Fintech Drinks of 2021, we are excited to discuss a major technological improvement in the payments space called Real-Time Rails (RTR).

Leading up to the Payment’s Summit by Payments Canada, we will be discussing how the implementation of RTR will impact different stakeholders and opportunities that this presents for the ecosystem.

This will also be a great chance to network with the payments/fintech community before the big Summit the following week.

Join us on May 27th for a great panel discussion as well as networking sessions before and after the main event.
