We also have a stellar collection of speakers and topics in our afternoon breakout tracks covering digital banking, lending innovation, payments and the cutting edge of fintech.

While hearing from these fintech leaders is important, networking with your peers is critical during this time of limited travel. We will have all the leading companies of Latin American fintech in attendance and available for meetings in our popular Brella platform. You can start pre-scheduling meetings today. We also have “networking roulette” where an algorithm will match you with people you should meet for a quick 7-minute intro meeting. This has proved to be very popular at our USA and Europe events.

Can’t Afford to Attend? Apply for Our Hardship Program

We know these are difficult times for many companies. We have heard from a number of people in our Latin American community who have said that they would love to attend but can’t afford it. So, we have set aside a limited number of free passes for those people who are struggling. You can apply here to be included in this program. If you are approved we will get back to you within 24 hours.

I look forward to seeing you online next week at LendIt Fintech LatAm 2020.
