Chicago Fin Tech Event on Sep 13 at MakeSpace

When Kenny and I started West Loop Ventures, we had three things we wanted to accomplish.  Obviously, making money for our LPs and ourselves was a goal.  But the two other goals were different.

One of them was to educate the community about issues in B2B Fin Tech.  We have hosted two events in the past around these issues.  Now we are participating in a third hosted by CFX.  Getting information to the community about B2B Fin Tech issues will help entrepreneurs think about them and build companies around them.  This is important to us.

I am going to moderate a discussion on some cutting edge issues in Fin Tech on Sep 13.  Click on the register link to see who will be coming.  I hope you can come.  It’s at MakeSpace in Chicago. We are going to be discussing some cutting edge events in B2B Fin Tech.  Some of it will surround financial advisors.  Here are the details.
