Why did you charge for tickets this year?

Fintech Sandbox, which organizes and hosts Boston Fintech Week, is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Our limited resources go towards supporting early-stage fintech entrepreneurs and hosting this annual event. As much as we have resisted the idea, we’ve reached the conclusion that we must charge a modest amount to help defray the operating costs of running a top-flight multi-day conference. We believe the modest price is reasonable, especially compared to the ticket fees of many other fintech conferences. No profit will be made off of your ticket fee.

What is your cancellation or refund policy?

Tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable.

I am an early-stage fintech founder, are free tickets to the 2-day conference available?

Given our mission to support early-stage fintech founders, we are happy to provide a free tickets to eligible early-stage startups/entrepreneurs who meet the general requirements of our programs. Tickets are for the 2-day conference hosted on Oct 11 & 12 by Fintech Sandbox at the Federal Bank of Boston. Startups must be Series A or earlier to be eligible.

 

You can apply for a complimentary ticket for early-stage founders here.  We are only able to offer a limited number of free tickets so register only if you do plan to attend. You must apply no later that October 5.

If I am a student, do I still need to pay for a ticket?

We want Boston Fintech Week to be accessible to everyone.

 

If you are a student, we are happy to offer free registration. Student tickets are now available but you must register for them by October 4. We are only able to offer a limited number of free tickets so register only if you do plan to attend. Free student tickets do not include access to our networking app.

Logistics

I am coming from out of town/state/country. What do I need to know about transportation?
