Lien page Intro to Fintech

Are YOU prepared for the jobs of the future?

Fintech is the marriage of finance and technology. While Finance has been around for close to 100 years affecting all industries, much of the buzz has happened in the last decade, as startups have amassed over $20 billion in global financing, $1 billion of which was raised in Canada. What's the cause of this acceleration - the 4th industrial evolution.

Technologies like artificial Intelligence, blockchain technology, and cyber security are poised to integrate deeper into the existing trillion-dollar finance industry that affects 20% of world’s GDP. The exact outcome remains unclear, but every human being on the planet will be affected by Fintech in the next 20 years. Are you willing to ensure it's for the better?
