The idea was conceived a couple of years ago when Bo Brustkern (CEO and Co-Founder) and Joy Schwartz (President) were brainstorming on how we could serve the LendIt Fintech community all year long.
While LendIt events have been very successful for many years they only happened once a year and we wanted to build a community that would be able to learn from each other all year long. Fast forward to a couple of months ago and we decided the time to do this is now. With the world turning upside down, today, more than ever, we need to stay on top of what is happening and be able to connect with our peers.
Today, LendIt Fintech Digital (LFD) has launched. What is it exactly? LFD is an online community like no other. More than a virtual conference it will be a year-round initiative bringing together fintech leaders to engage with the community in a variety of different formats ranging from virtual keynotes, panels, intimate roundtables, news discussions and virtual town halls. There will also be opportunities for networking and for going behind the curtain with the LendIt leadership.
