Upstart in Washington, D.C. for FinCon 2019

National Mall and United States Capitol in Washington, DC

FinCon 2019 is just around the corner! From September 4th to 7th, the Upstart Team will be descending on our nation’s capital, Washington D.C., for this unforgettable and inspirational annual finance conference.

What is FinCon?

FinCon, known as Financial Content Expo, is a financial media conference where people can create, inspire, and share their stories about money and all things finance related. Launched in 2011, it started as just a financial blogger conference. In this year’s ninth iteration, the conference has expanded to include influential digital and social content creators from all types of media (Podcasters, YouTubers, Bloggers, etc.) within the personal finance space.

The conference will be held at the historic Washington Hilton and is expected to include more than 2,500 attendees, 200 speakers, and 100 exhibitors. From Wednesday to Saturday, FinCon attendees can enjoy talks on topics from credit reports and credit scores to launching a successful podcast. This year’s keynote speakers will be Ramit Sethi, New York Times best-selling author of I Will Teach You to Be Rich, and Sharon Epperson, CNBC Senior Personal Finance Correspondent.

Unlike any other conference, FinCon is known for its lively and close-knit community that is deeply passionate about personal finance and financial self-improvement.

Our Participation

Upstart is very excited to be participating as a sponsor and exhibitor at FinCon. This year, we will have a booth in FinCon Central. The Upstart booth will feature swags, snacks, giveaways, and digital caricatures. Stop by booth #525 to check it out!

At Upstart, we see our borrowers as people with multifaceted experiences, beyond just their credit score. We look forward to connecting with like-minded digital creators during FinCon that share our same passion and mission. We are also very excited to announce that we have selected two bloggers as Upstart Premier Partners to represent Upstart and share more about how Upstart is increasing access to affordable credit— Brian of Debt Discipline and Helen of Hel on Heels. If you’re at FinCon, be sure to find Helen and Brian to say hi!
