The Georgia FinTech Academy, a collaboration between Georgia’s FinTech industry and the University System of Georgia, is a talent development initiative that informs learners about the specialized educational experiences needed to enter the FinTech sector regardless of where they live in the state or the college in which they enroll.

What is FinTech

Financial Technology, or FinTech, encompasses all of the “behind the scenes” operations that occur to make financial services more convenient. Every time you swipe a debit card, make a mobile bank deposit, pay a bill online, or send money to a friend, there are multiple FinTech companies working simultaneously to make those transactions possible.
