Hi Everyone,

NewFinance is a Meetup that started in London, England, and is now  expanding to New York and the Bay Area. Our events are for Entrepreneurs, Technologists, Professionals, Investors, and everyone interested in FinTech Innovation. We also video our events so if you can't make it please catch us on the NewFinance YouTube Channel.

This is the first of our six month Bay Area FinTech Seminar series where we'll be exploring the hottest topics in FinTech in our proven Seminar format:

Month 1 - February 13th - Bitcoin

Month 2 - March 13th - Payments

Month 3 - April 17th - Cloud

Month 4 - May 15th - Analytics & Big Data

Month 5 - June 12th - Investment Information

Month 6 - July 17th - Startup Funding

We don't need to tell you that Bitcoin is a hot topic in Fintech right now so we'd like to explore some of the rapidly developing themes around the subject and the latest developments, key players and their offerings.

We'll be videoing the session as usual for those of you who are unable to attend. You may click here to watch the videos from our previous seminars and here to see the photos.

Check out our London Bitcoin session in October - we held a Bitcoin Seminar in London last October which makes for a useful comparison to the US, see the videos here, the guide here and the photos here.

Students - we currently have a number of free tickets available for students, please join the group using your academic email and then message an Organiser if you'd like one.
