Meet your class

The inaugural Class of 2021.

FinRise was launched in February of 2021 with the goal of providing financial access and entrepreneurial support to fintech founders from underrepresented backgrounds. Since launching the program, we have received 100+ applications and have carefully selected 6 participants to be a part of our inaugural cohort, the FinRise class of 2021. We are really glad you are able to participate in this program and we look forward to working together and providing the support you need to make FinTech more incluse.

Over the course of the next 9 months, we have scheduled a series of virtual events and meetings to help get you and the rest of the class access to resources and expand your capital access network. Learn more about the 6 participants of the FinRise class of 2021 below.
