Since our launch, we have led the effort in bringing FinTech ("financial technology") innovation and education to the masses at the University of Michigan

Michigan FinTech was started in 2017 by Rishi Prasad (BBA ‘20) to connect students, educators, innovators, and thought leaders in the field of financial technology.


  • Education: Learn how emerging technologies are re-shaping financial services

  • Career Development: Explore career opportunities (internship & full-time) at leading FinTechs

  • Innovation: Get hands-on experience through workshops and competitions

What We've Achieved

  • Grew to a community of 500+ students (undergraduates, graduates & MBAs) from all majors & backgrounds in our first year

  • Worked with leading companies such as Coinbase, DRW, MoneyLion and Clinc AI to deliver industry knowledge, domain expertise and financial innovation to our students (see Events)

  • Partnered with Wolverine Crypto to launch the first ever student-led digital asset investment fund in the world ($20K AUM)
