In the past two months we have focused completely on providing industry leading digital content for our community. We will continue to bring leading industry voices here all year long. But we also have other digital content that is being produced regularly so it can get a little confusing for the casual observer. We realized it was time to fully explain how everything works. So, in this post we delve into all of our different digital offerings providing explanations for each.
LendIt Fintech Digital
Our new digital community, LendIt Fintech Digital, launched earlier this month with engaging sessions every day. Anyone can attend one session as our guest for free but for additional content you need to join the community. My favorite session so far was my interview with Ron Suber last week and while the full replay is only available to LFD members we created a highlights video here. And below you can watch our digest from last week featuring the other sessions.
We will continue to bring cutting edge digital content in the form of virtual panels, roundtable discussions and Ask Me Anything sessions. You can view our upcoming schedule here. To see any of these great sessions please join the community.
Every week we are also producing webinars open to everyone. These happen outside LendIt Fintech Digital and are typically sponsored by a leading industry player. For these session all you need to do is provide your contact information and you can watch the webinar live (and ask questions) or watch the recording at a later time. For information on sponsoring one of our webinars please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have created quite the library of industry white papers now. Typically, these papers are sponsored but provide deep analysis on a single topic, they are never sales pitches. Our white papers serve two important purposes. First, they help the industry stay informed and second, help our sponsors build brand awareness and generate business leads.
LendIt Fintech News – Daily Newsletter
Since 2016 the LendIt Fintech content team has provided a daily newsletter showcasing the most important news stories of the day. We search all the news stories, selecting the ones we think are most interesting and write one paragraph describing the news. We compile everything into an email that is sent early afternoon eastern time every weekday. With just five minutes of reading a day LendIt Fintech News allows you to stay on top of the important fintech news stories every day.
Lend Academy Podcast
The Lend Academy Podcast is a weekly interview series I have hosted since 2013. As of this writing we are nearing 250 episodes and 750,000 downloads. The approximately 30 minute show features interviews with fintech leaders where I do a deep dive into their business to provide insight for the industry. The shows are available on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, Spotify and now in a video format on YouTube.
LendIt Fintech YouTube Channel
Going back to our very first event in 2013 we have recorded the keynote stage at our live in-person events in the USA, Europe, China and now Latin America. The LendIt Fintech YouTube channel has most of these keynote session in their entirety and it also has the LendIt Fintech Digital weekly digests as well as highlight reels from our live events.
An under appreciated part of the LendIt Fintech digital offerings is LendIt Rewind. This is a podcast format of all the sessions recorded at our live events. These include not just the keynote sessions but all the breakout room sessions as well. There are several hundred hours of content on there where anyone can dive in and get a virtual Ph. D. in fintech. These are available on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher and Spotify.
Of course, another of our digital offerings is this blog that you are reading right now where we provide industry commentary and deeper coverage of important news stories. As you can see we have many ways for you to engage with LendIt Fintech digitally, we hope you take advantage of all we have to offer.
