From the WeLab's perspective, the biggest benefits from the Fintech Association can be divided into two buckets.

1.  Networking opportunities, meeting other members and industry players to learn about new trends, and to discuss potential issues that all of us are potentially facing. 

2.  Advocacy, and the role that the Fintech Association plays as being one of the key industry groups to be the voice for Fintech.

As founding partner, Visa believes an open, collaborative ecosystem is crucial as the city matures into a global fintech hub.
