Does your startup involve Financial Technology (FinTech)? FinTech is a pretty broad industry manifesting in many different ways. For example:

Is handling financial transactions no matter if it’s cash, Bitcoin, credit card, wire, or check.  
Is learning how to save for retirement by playing a game.
Is lending money to people and businesses.
Is splitting and paying your restaurant check with an app.
Is getting offers, coupons, and points for buying a cup of coffee.
Is paying your nanny with a text message.
Is crowdfunding your community project.
Are the financial regulatory issues involving money no matter the industry you are in.
And the list goes on…

If you are involved in something along these lines, then the FinTech Circle may be for you. The circle is a discussion among community peers, whether your product is in the idea stage or has already entered the market.  This circle is also an excellent resource to learn about the multitude of resources at ATDC available to help build your FinTech business.

There must be a significant technology component in your business model to attend these meetings. 
Please absolutely no service providers. It is only for entrepreneurs thinking about and/or doing a FinTech-related startup. This is not a sales networking opportunity.

    The holiday season is approaching which also means we're going to encounter wasted, unwanted, and needless items. What should we do?

    About this Event

    Wasted During the Holiday Season?

    Attend this event to learn from the perspective of a packaging materials and plastics industry expert and ATDC community member, Leticia Socal.

    This ATDC event is open to the general public and does not require membership to attend.

    If you're someone with interests in building a tech company involving Circularity, Sustainability, and/or Clean Tech, this is the event for you to network with others of mutual interests.

    With the increased interest and momentum in Circularity, GreenTech, and Sustainability, there’s no better time than now to build off of this with founders of the new technologies and innovative business models driving the change.

     

    Here are some frequently asked questions

    What is a circular economy?

    A circular economy is designed to turn all the waste that companies and individuals process into a valuable, productive resource to be used again. It does this by reintroducing "waste" into the production cycle instead of disposing products.

    What is circularity?

    Eliminate waste + maximize use of resources

    Circularity focuses on creating a "closed loop system” by designing out waste and pollution at the onset of product design, and keeping products and materials in use as productive resources to be used time and time again instead of disposing of them.

    What is Green Tech?

    Green Tech are technologies designed to help mitigate, and even reverse, human impact on the environment. The goal of green tech is to protect the environment, repair damage done to the environment in the past, conserve natural resources and preserve the Earth's natural resources. These technologies are generally focused on improving operational performance in manufacturing or to the product itself, while also reducing costs, energy consumption, waste, and other negative effects on the environment.

    What is sustainability?

    Sustainability is focused on reducing the demand of resources—natural, social, and economic resources---so that we avoid depleting the resources necessary for future generations to meet their needs and maintain ecological balance. In other words, “How do we meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs?"
