Who We Are

FinTech Women (FTW) is a community of and for women working in FinTech. We are an action-oriented network working to inspire, attract & advance women in our field. We create awareness, connections & opportunities while amplifying the success of women changemakers. FTW is an initiative of FinTEx, a non-profit, member-driven industry association, serving and building the Chicago FinTech ecosystem.


FTW works to create systemic change in the Chicago ecosystem by providing a self-sustaining platform and community for women to be viewed as thought leaders first, while working to foster a culture where gender equality groups are no longer needed.



The thought leaders and changemakers committed to promoting the mission and vision of FTW.  Nominate yourself or a colleague for an official position. Nominate here.
