Digital Economy Conference Brings FinTech Innovation to the Midwest

Just one month left until the premier FinTech conference on the Silicon Prairie. Omaha has a history as a FinTech hub, but minimal visibility into the innovation and disruption taking place in this region. Digital Economy 15 will change that by connecting startups, institutions, and the media for a thought-provoking day packed full of speakers, panels, and networking.

Digital Economy Conference Brings FinTech Innovation to the Midwest
Omaha, NE, September 02, 2015 --( In October, the Digital Economy Conference aims to bring bankers, developers, startup founders, venture capitalists and executives together to talk about the future of money in a digital world and how people transact electronically.

The first Financial Technology (FinTech) conference in the region will touch on payments, banking, digital currencies, mobile, Millennials, security, social media, compliance, e-commerce, retail, accounting and more.

The all-day event is Oct. 2 in Omaha, Nebraska, at the beautiful downtown Holland Performing Art Center and will include keynote presentations, panel discussions, networking and an after-hours mixer. Breakfast and lunch is provided.

The conference will also provide an opportunity for discussion and answers to the strategic questions being asked in boardrooms and startups everywhere.

“The Midwest has always positioned itself, quite literally, at the center of the payments processing industry, putting the Silicon Prairie on the cutting edge of FinTech innovation,” said Edward Weniger, founder of the conference. “When you look at the entirety of our region there are dozens of disruptive apps and companies in the space such as Dwolla in Des Moines and EyeVerify in Kansas City.”

Weniger said there is no more perfect time for an innovative financial conference with the maturity of cloud technology, the changing banking habits of Millennials and the boom of investment in financial technology startups.

Organizers are seeking industry experts and companies that are pushing the boundaries of FinTech to give keynotes about how their products and services are disrupting the sector.

Early bird tickets are on sale through Aug. 15 and are $275 for corporate attendees, $175 for small business attendees and $99 for individuals and entrepreneurs. After, prices increase to $395, $275, and $150 respectively.

Tickets, speaker applications and more information can be found online at

The event is being co-organized by AIM, a non-profit that is passionate about connecting people with technology and with each other. AIM is behind premier Midwest tech events like Big Omaha, Infotec and the Heartland Developers Conference.
