Wharton Undergraduate FinTech
Bringing together students, finance, and technology.
Who we are
to provide students opportunities to get involved in financial innovation via technology
to develop a community of fintech-focused students, entrepreneurs, and investors
to spur the growth of fintech ventures and new applications to the business world
We are undergradutes at the University of Pennsylvania spanning the Wharton, Engineering, and Arts & Sciences schools interested in the intersection of finance and technology.
Our club is officially recognized by Wharton Council.
We host datathons and hackathons, speakers, and workshops, while helping to sponsor a tech trek for our students to gain exposure to the world of fintech.
Our events are available to our members. To join our listserv and club membership, click here. You don't need fintech experience - just interest and excitement to learn!
