The National Crowdfunding & Fintech Association (NCFA), Toronto Finance International (TFI), and partners are pleased to announce an updated programme and exciting new virtual and interactive format for the annual FFCON conference.

Taking place online this year due to the COVID pandemic, FFCON20 DIGITAL will encompass eight themes across weekly sessions taking place from July 9 through August 27 inclusive.  Each week a global line-up of fintech leaders will discuss and debate eight of the latest fintech themes and engage in curated networking and pitching challenges every Thursday afternoon from 2 p.m. ET.

Now in its 6th year, FFCON20 will be an online experience bringing together prominent industry experts, entrepreneurs, professionals, regulatory bodies and ecosystem stakeholders in fintech, digital identity, blockchain, crypto, AI, capital markets innovation and alternative finance to discuss innovation and Canada’s ability to compete and scale globally, the latest industry developments and emerging trends, regulation and thought leadership.

“To foster innovation, growth and collaboration in the Fintech sector both in Canada and internationally, we have held the Fintech and Financing conference for six years now. While this year, in light of the pandemic, will be a virtual event, we are incredibly grateful to have retained the valuable support of our partner speakers and sponsors in adapting to this year’s new format,” said Craig Asano, Founder and CEO of the National Crowdfunding & Fintech Association of Canada.

The theme of this year’s conference is ‘RISE’ reflecting the joint efforts of the two associations, NCFA and TFI, to build and increase the success and sustainability of Canada’s fintech and financial sector.

“We have the opportunity to leverage North America’s second-largest financial centre, combined with its third ranked tech cluster, and use this momentum to become a global fintech leader. Collaboration among industry stakeholders is a critical element required to move Toronto into the top tier of international fintech hubs, and we are pleased to be working with NCFA to support and grow the sector’s innovation ecosystem,” Jennifer Reynolds, President & CEO, TFI.
