Now accepting fintech_devcon scholarship applications

Our fintech_devcon conference follows the give-first mantra inspired by the TechStars community. It means freely giving to others without expecting to get something in return. That’s why we’ve partnered with MX to open up the Give First scholarship program to improve access, participation, and engagement for all people, regardless of identity or background.

About the Give First scholarship

fintech_devcon is a space to learn from other builders, to inspire one another, and to build meaningful connections. That’s why it’s important to bring together voices of all backgrounds.

This year, MX would like to dedicate the Give First scholarship to Brandon Dewitt, the co-founder and CTO of MX. Brandon was a passionate developer who believed that we all have a moral imperative to use technology and our skills to improve mankind. Brandon lived with purpose and joy, inspiring us all to be better every day.
