Coming April 25, 2018:
A summit for technology startups focused on financial markets & trading

FinTech Exchange (FTX) is Chicago's leading fintech event for financial markets and trading technology. FTX has been a sellout since its inception in 2015, with close to 500 attendees each year. This event has featured growth firms as well as world-class companies, including: CME Group, CBOE, IBM Watson, Amazon Web Services, Google, Trading Technologies, and Tableau.

For 2018, we are expanding even further with the addition of Startup Exchange—a half-day event dedicated exclusively to first-stage fintech startups offering innovative technology relevant to financial markets and trading.

Only 16 firms can participate; three will win cash prizes.
All participants will have an opportunity to attract investors, partners and clients.
No cost to present!
