The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) Strategic Hub for Innovation and Financial Technology (FinHub) revealed March 6 that it will be touring the country and running face-to-face meetings with FinTech entrepreneurs and startups.
The initial meetings will be conducted in the SEC offices in San Francisco, according to the SEC’s announcement. Subsequently, the FinHub staff will roam the country to hold “local peer-to-peer” meetings in which the FinTech community members will have the opportunity to ask SEC people queries about projects, regulations, or any concerns. Members of the community can also deliberate over pressing issues or even present recommendations or showcase the project they are working on.
The meetings will commence on March 26, 2019.
Partakers who are interested to join the meetings should fill out a request form and can include any relevant information about their firms or projects, like research material, white papers, or presentations.
Established in October last year under the supervision of Valerie A. Szczepanik, the SEC’s FinHub department aims to offer the FinTech industry with rock-hard information about regulations and laws and offer a channel for communication with the SEC.
