ATLANTA, Oct. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- TradeRocket, Inc. is pleased to be participating in Money 20/20, the world's largest payments and financial services innovation event, as part of a delegation of nearly 200 Georgia-based financial technology (FinTech) and financial services (FinServ) professionals. The event will take place from October 23rd - 26th at The Venetian in Las Vegas, and will gather more than 10,000 attendees from more than 3,000 companies and 75 countries.
Led by FinTech Atlanta, this Georgian delegation includes more than 20 exhibitors and 25 leaders who will speak at 13 educational sessions on topics ranging from machine learning, to checkless checking, to lending-as-a-service. TradeRocket CEO Jim Eckstein will be discussing Georgia's FinTech ecosystem in a roundtable discussion during the conference. In addition, TradeRocket will have company executives on hand to demo its services as part of Startup Row (Booth SR#36).
"We're thrilled to be part of a delegation of Georgia FinTech innovators," said Eckstein. "This event comes along at a perfect time for us, and we look forward to sharing our story just as we're seeing a wave of new data support our assertion that the mid-market is hungry for more working capital."
TradeRocket is a cloud-based marketplace that connects Buyers and Suppliers to a network of Funders, allowing fast, easy access to working capital for the mid-market. While working capital finance has typically been more readily available to larger enterprises, that has historically not been the case for smaller companies, including the mid-market. According to the recently released, 2016 International Chamber of Commerce Global Survey on Trade Finance, 78% of regional banks cited an increasing shortfall of trade finance. Small-to-medium sized businesses are disproportionately impacted, as this group accounted for 58% of all application rejections. TradeRocket's marketplace is taking direct aim at these most affected entities, helping to bring critical working capital to companies that have a significant impact on the world's economy.
The FinTech Atlanta delegation and associated events are curated by the following partners and sponsors: Advanced Technology Development Center (ATDC), American Transaction Processors Coalition (ATPC), City of Alpharetta, Georgia Department of Economic Development, Development Authority of Fulton County, Habif, Arogeti and Wynne (HA&W), Invest Atlanta, MAC, Technology Association of Georgia (TAG), and WNA.
