Get inspired, there are groundbreaking women in Fintech. These women have marched forward despite the obstacles and found a way to make themselves heard in the Fintech space.

The world of fintech (financial-tech) is often described as revolutionary and innovative in its impact on the modern financial world and the use of cutting edge technology to deliver financial services.

Decades later, women still face major barriers to entry in this male-dominated industry that historically dismisses the value, talent and insight countless women have to offer.
