What's this group about?

New Finance Technologies are currently transforming our traditional finance industry, consumers and corporates are demanding new innovative solutions for web and mobile. The tech is already here, the question is how do we leverage it.

You should join this group if you are interested or involved in financial technology, especially if you are at the ideas stage or have a startup. You'll also find it valuable if you just use existing technology and want something better or just want to get involved from a legal, funding or process perspective.

This months theme: Having discussed market needs we'd now like to invite anyone with an idea to get up for 5 minutes and pitch to the group. This is a great way to validate your idea long before you move back in with your parents or start selling your worldly goods to pay for hosting.

There's a lot of great expertise here, I'll personally donate some of my time to help an Entrepreneur and I know others who feel the same way. You might find co-founders, support services, investment or just get some valuable feedback. Please drop me a line if you'd like a slot.
