Registration is open for The Venture Center of Little Rock’s VenCent 2023 Fintech Summit, an event that connects bankers and financial service providers with entrepreneurs and companies offering solutions in the fintech space.
The event, which launched in 2022, is scheduled for Aug. 14 - 15 in Little Rock.
It will feature a “VenCent Match,” which The Venture Center described in a news release as “a dynamic and exclusive speed networking breakout option for bankers and fintech innovators to make intentional connections in real time.”
“Over the course of the two-day event, these rotating one-on-ones will accommodate targeted pitches from fintechs, maximizing every moment to potentially secure new partnerships with banks,” the news release said.
The summit will provide attendees from the banking sector with access to the latest advances in fintech as well as insight from financial policymakers, The Venture Center said.
Attendees of the 2022 VenCent summit represented more than 135 U.S. banks and more than 125 global fintech companies, the nonprofit entrepreneurial support organization said.
“We’ve programmed VenCent to provide true value to our attendees,” Arthur Orduña, executive director of The Venture Center, said in a statement. “By cutting through the usual conference fluff and instead delivering in-person networking experiences purpose-built to connect banking decision-makers and fintech founders, we’re ensuring every moment is maximized.”
“We’re putting bankers and fintechs at the center of the experience so they can have important, fact-finding conversations in a very finite amount of time,” Orduña said.
