HLS Students – Cross-Reg in Financial Tech Course at MIT

MartinTrustCenterThis fall, the Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship is launching a new experimental course on FinTech (the use of innovative technologies in financial services). The course will meet for seven sessions on Tuesday evenings, from 5:30 to 7:30 pm, starting October 27th. As currently envisioned, the course will focus on FinTech opportunities in payments, cryptocurrencies, lending, electronic trading and consumer finance. Most of the students in the course will be from MIT (chiefly the Sloan School and Computer Science Department), but the organizers also hope to attract a limited number of HLS students with interests in innovation and financial regulation. Students enrolled in the course will work in teams to develop a business plan for a new FinTech product. The plans will be eligible for entry in the MIT FinTech Competition and 100k Business Plan Competition in the Spring of 2016. If you are interested in learning more about this offering and the logistics of cross-registration, please contact Professor Howell Jackson (hjackson@law.harvard.edu) or Carlos Sanchez Altable at the MIT Marin Center (fintechventures@mit.edu).
