On Tuesday May 4th noon PT, Kirill Makharinsky (CEO of Enki) will have an interactive conversation on the topic with Immad Akhund and Ian Kar.

Immad is the CEO and founder of Mercury Bank - one of the fastest-growing fintech companies today, backed by Andreessen Horowitz, SV Angel, Naval Ravikant and many more top-tier investors. Ian is the CEO and founder of Fintech Today, a community and content company focused on the fintech startup ecosystem.

Here’s what you’ll learn:

  2. What the hottest companies are focused on, and what top-tier VCs are most excited about in fintech;
  3. What differentiates the most effective teams in fintech from the rest;
  4. What’s hot and not in fintech right now. (We might even cover Bitcoin, NFTs, you know, the important stuff.)

And we won't just talk about stories and advice, we'll also show! We'll dig into examples and artifacts, and learn what worked and didn't at the companies that Immad and Ian have had exposure to.

Finally, Immad and Ian will go through our fintech-themed Grandma test, dashboard review, and company scenario challenges! As always, you'll be able to ask Immad or Ian a question at any time during the event.

This course was excellent, even for those with little to no SQL experience! Having access to a mentor and weekly check-ins meant I always felt supported and was able to learn at a pace that suited me, which definitely helped build my confidence and skill.
