We have various current and past initiatives driven by our mission to immerse students in fintech. For partnerships feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org or our President Althea email@example.com
WEEKLY DISCUSSIONS & EDUCATION
Weekly g-body meetings allow members to discuss different topics in fintech and learn professional development. CFT's first semester taught how to ideate business ideas with 3 startup teams presenting and since then various educational topics are taught in subteam and g-body meetings.
Members create hands-on projects in one of two subteams. The investment team works on creating investment theses and the engineering team is building a financial + risk analytics platform. Both teams are structured with open space to work on new projects. Learn more via our recruitment page!
