To understand the economic growth of the state’s fintech industry, Venture Atlanta has invited two of the city’s most knowledgable business leaders, CEO of First Data Frank Bisognano and president and CEO of the Metro Atlanta Chamber (MAC) Hala Moddelmog, for a fireside chat to discuss the growth and innovation opportunities related to Atlanta’s fintech industry.

Venture Atlanta, held this year from October 16-17, is the largest venture investor conference held in the Southeast and has served as a launch pad for numerous Georgia-based startups, including fintech startups.

“With Georgia-based FinTech solutions continuing to power the global economy, we’re thrilled to bring these two amazing leaders together on the Venture Atlanta stage,” said David Hartnett, MAC’s chief economic development officer and one of the founding partners of Venture Atlanta.

The fireside chat will close the first day of the Venture Atlanta 2018 conference on Tuesday, October 16. Additional speakers include serial entrepreneur Dave DeWalt, former CEO at FireEye, McAfee and Documentum; and Zach Nelson, former CEO of NetSuite.
