A conflation of the terms “finance” and “technology,” Fintech refers to any business that uses technology to enhance or automate financial services and processes. The term is a broad and rapidly growing industry serving both consumers and businesses. From mobile banking and insurance to cryptocurrency and investment apps, FinTech has broad applications. The goal of FinTech India Live is to bring together virtually over 1,000 eminent CxOs, decision makers, innovators, entrepreneurs, investors, venture capitalists, bureaucrats and policy makers from the FinTech, banking, financial services sectors on a full-featured virtual conferencing platform.
A little bit about IIT Bombay Alumni Association (IITBAA). IITBAA is a Section 8 Not-for-Profit company licensed under the Companies Act 2013 that creates and maintains a life-long connection between IIT Bombay and its alumni.

This alumni organisation has a proven track record of hosting successful events with known leaders and innovators of national and international repute. The Global Business Forum (GBF) held in October, 2015 in Goa created unprecedented opportunities for the foremost technology innovators from the IIT Bombay community to engage with India’s top political decision makers as well as influential players in national and international businesses. The AU Bank Global IITBAA Summit 2019 held in Jaipur included panel discussions, interactions, and a start-up showcase, featuring some of the leading industry experts.
