The past few years have set new records for venture capital investment in FinTech startups. The industry has seen several unicorn-level successes in private rounds and IPOs.

However, recent turbulence among early market leaders in alternative lending (Lending Club, Prosper, On Deck Capital) has caused some investors to question the health of the category.

Come hear several VC industry veterans interpret the current market signals in FinTech and discuss (perhaps debate) how the future of FinTech VC will look.

Feel free to inform colleagues about this event who may be interested.

Jay Reinemann

Partner at Propel Venture Partners

Jay has been immersed in the financial services sector throughout his career, much of it as an investor. After college, he worked at Old Kent Financial Corporation (now Fifth Third), Andersen Consulting, and then Visa, where he held operational and investor roles and eventually led Visa’s Corporate Ventures and Strategic Alliances group.

At Visa, Jay led investments in Tripwire (acquired by Belden), Good (acquired by Motorola), Mobileway (acquired by Sybase), Application Security (acquired by Trustwave), Spi Dynamics (acquired by HP), Way Systems (acquired by VeriFone), and ISCubed (out of business).

After Visa, Jay joined the founding team of an early stage social commerce start-up and founded a fintech venture fund, Altai Ventures, which was slightly ahead of the curve but failed to raise capital during the financial crisis. But the experience only increased his drive for fintech innovation and paved the way for him to join BBVA in 2011.

Jay is a Wisconsin native but has lived and worked in California for the last 20 years. He lives on the Peninsula with his wife and kids.
