6 Reasons To Attend The Benzinga Fintech Awards
Benzinga will host the first-ever Benzinga Fintech Awards Gala on April 8 in New York. Held at the swanky Tribeca Three Sixty, the event will honor the best companies in the fintech space.
"We deeply believe there's a better way to help people take control of their financial future and these great companies are bringing us one step closer to achieving that," said Kyle Bazzy, president of Benzinga and Marketfy. "We are excited to do our part."
Read on to see why Mr. Bazzy is so excited.
1. Discover The Next Big Fintech Enterprise
The Benzinga Fintech Awards Gala provides a unique way to meet with some of the most exciting fintech companies in the world.
It's a chance to network with the stars of tomorrow, build relationships with rising entrepreneurs, form new partnerships and uncover the next great investment opportunity.
2. Learn Who's Helping Others Build Wealth (And How To Benefit)
Most fintech-related events are about the payments industry. The Benzinga Fintech Awards Gala is the first one to focus specifically on capital markets.
3. Meet Industry Execs, Hedge Fund Managers And More
Attendees will have the chance to meet some of the most brilliant individuals in the industry, including Josh Brown (CEO of Ritholtz Wealth Management), Andrew Ackerman (managing director of DreamIt New York), Steve Ehrlich (CEO of Honos Financial), Ron Insana (senior analyst at CNBC and a financial industry expert) and Charlie Kroll (former CEO/founder of Andera).
4. Promote Your Brand
When Benzinga decided to create the Fintech Awards Gala, the company quickly realized that it could serve other firms by giving them the opportunity to exhibit or sponsor the event. That offer proved to be very popular.
Attendees valued the ability to promote their products and services in such a unique and intimate setting.
5. Connect With VCs, Industry Veterans And Other Investors
The gala is also a great place for new or aspiring entrepreneurs to meet potential partners, mentors and venture capitalists.
6: thinkorswim Open Bar
Attendees can drop by thinkorswim's open bar and try TD Ameritrade's special drink, Hot Commodity.
Time Is Running Out
April 8 is just around the corner. Space is very limited (the initial batch of tickets are already sold out), so Benzinga is encouraging interested parties to purchase their tickets immediately (use coupon code BZFRIEND to save $100 off the regular admission price).
