Our society strives to be impactful in every domain.
A Terry FinTech Society member won 1st place at the hackathon at the Atlanta Bitcoin Conference.
A Terry FinTech Society team placed 2nd in the Blockchain Tech Challenge (sponsored by the NCR Corporation) at UGAHacks, a national-level hackathon.
Our first ever Mock Cryptocurrency Portfolio team generated an effective gain of 46.53% over four months, beating the base portfolio by nearly 7%.
Our guest speakers have included the Former Head of Growth at Plaid, a Managing Director at Morgan Stanley, an Executive Partner of Blockchain Technology at Gartner, and representatives from Fiserv, NCR, FIS, and other industry-leading companies.
We have hosted collaborative meetings with other student organizations such as Women in Technology, Google Developers Group, and the UGA Kickstart Fund.
6 of our members have been featured in the podcast episodes of the Georgia FinTech Academy, interviewing business executives in the FinTech industry.
Our members have accepted internships and full-time roles at IBM, NCR, BlackRock, Equifax, Fiserv, Truist, JP Morgan Chase, Regions Bank, Cox, Bank of America, and other private wealth management firms and startups.
Service is an important component of TFS. We have taught Athens-Clarke High School students financial literacy through a collaboration with the Future Business Leaders of America, provided homework help and extended learning activities to young children at the Thomas Lay Afterschool Program, raised over 93 cans for the local food bank in a service project, and written articles to educate the public about personal finance.
Women make up 33% of our executive team and we are building talent pipelines with other student organizations to increase the number of women and underrepresented groups in the world of FinTech.
Mock Crypto Portfolio
As part of our commitment to education and the professional growth of our members, we organize an annual mock cryptocurrency portfolio where a select group of society members evaluate the cryptocurrency market and track their progress to try and beat the market. Below are the slides from last year’s team!
