The Singapore FinTech Youth Chapter (SFYC) is a youth community and working group with the Singapore FinTech Association (SFA) that enables youths with interest in FinTech to be connected to the FinTech community locally and overseas, as well as gain a deeper understanding and access to FinTech careers and opportunities locally and globally.
The Chapter is powered by PolyFinTech 100, a coordinated pan-polytechnic effort (comprising Ngee Ann Polytechnic, Nanyang Polytechnic, Republic Polytechnic, Singapore Polytechnic and Temasek Polytechnic) to deepen the collaboration with the FinTech industry and contribute to the development of a strong talent pool as part of the development of Singapore into a Smart Financial Centre and a global FinTech hub.
The Chapter seeks to engage youths up to 35 years old, with the following objectives:
Create a vibrant and cohesive community of youths within the FinTech ecosystem via events, workshops, etc
Connecting youth talents with the FinTech community locally and overseas for careers and opportunities
Advocating and educating youth communities on FinTech
Act as a conduit between the industry and IHLs
