LendIt Fintech LatAm is happening December 8-9, virtually, of course. We are excited to be returning to the Latin American market as it remains the hottest region on the planet when it comes to fintech. And while the pandemic has had a major impact on region, as it has most places, if anything fintech is growing even faster now.
This will be our third virtual event of the year and we now know the ingredients of hosting a successful virtual event. And we couldn’t be more pleased with how our second annual Latin American event is coming together. So, what can you expect at LendIt Fintech LatAm 2020? Here is a run down of the different components of the show.
While networking is always a focus at LendIt, when we moved to virtual events we knew we had to make the networking experience fantastic. And judging from the comments we have received at our previous two events we have succeeded. Several people said networking at LendIt Fintech was even better in the virtual format than in-person. Here is what you can expect.
One-on-One meetings. Pre-schedule one-on-one meetings and view the complete attendee list using Brella’s world-class networking technology.
Networking Roulette. Let our algorithm match you for a series of spontaneous one-on-one meetings to close day one. This is serious fun for novice and expert networkers alike.
Overtime. Participate in lively discussions with your peers during Overtime at the conclusion of day two. Overtime has been a real hit with our community because of its authentic interface.
Women in Fintech Power Hour. Connect with impressive and interesting women during the lunch break on Day One in a speed networking session.
We are absolutely thrilled with the way the agenda has come together over the last couple of months. This is without doubt a more high powered keynote roster than last year with pretty much everyone we invited saying yes. Here are are some of the big names you can learn from at LendIt Fintech LatAm 2020:
David Vélez – CEO of Nubank
The largest digital bank on the planet is Nubank, based in Brazil. With over 30 million customers and a reported valuation of $10 billion Nubank is not just the most important fintech player in Latin America, it is unique in the world. We are so thrilled to have Nigel Morris of QED Investors interview David on our virtual keynote stage to kick off the show.
Sergio Furio – CEO of Creditas
Creditas is the most successful fintech lender in Latin America but they are far more than just a lender. They are using lending as a gateway to provide, not just other financial services, but to offer products even beyond finance. Their model is truly fascinating and one that could be a blueprint for fintech lenders in the future.
Pierpaolo Barbieri – CEO of Ualá
Barely three years old, Ualá is likely the fastest growing fintech company in Latin America. With two million prepaid card customers in Argentina they have recently expanded to Mexico to bring their inclusive banking offering to more people. Pierpaolo will be kicking off day two of the show.
Hernan Kazah – Managing Partner of Kaszek Ventures
The co-founder of e-commerce giant Mercado Libre now runs the largest venture fund in Latin America with over $1 billion in capital raised. Started in 2011, Kaszek Ventures has provided capital and expertise to many of this current generation of fintech leaders.
