About the FinTech Talent Programme

2018 and 2019
The National Trades Union Congress (NTUC), the Singapore Polytechnic (SP) and the Singapore FinTech Association (SFA) have jointly created the inaugural 3-month FinTech Talent (FT) Programme, executed by Fintech Academy. Through this initiative, we are dedicated to grooming aspiring PMEs into exceptional FinTech leaders in their respective fields of expertise. We are committed to providing continuous engagements, career development platforms and networking opportunities for FT Programme participants.
The FT Programme features renowned industry practitioners, C-suite leaders and entrepreneurs from locally and internationally grown fintech companies. FinTech professionals attended sessions as guest speakers and our Fintech Academy training consultants engaged the participants through useful case studies and hands-on workshops where we aim to train participants in the areas of technical, leadership and soft skills. The course culminated in a demo day where we invited real Venture capitalists and bankers as our judges to assess their capstone projects for originality, viability and scalability.
Networking opportunities and the sharing of experiences by our speakers also provided access to participants at every session. The FT Programme endeavours to equip and certify FinTech professional with the right set of skills required to succeed in the workplace while additionally providing opportunities to expand their network by connecting with fellow practitioners, leaders, and entrepreneurs. Another successful outcome of the courses was to inspire our participants to further their studies and we are pleased that some have successfully obtained scholarships to attain Masters at our universities.
2019 and 2020
The success of the Talent Development programme which is now on autopilot run, saw us having the bandwidth to add more to enhance our outreach and create awareness about fintech. We ran talks and engaging workshops for Institutes of Higher Learning, ITE College, and MOE Schools.
We held our FinEdTech conference in 2019 for educators at M Hotel this year and like our FinEdTech Conference in 2018, we had an overwhelming response by professors, lecturers, and education officers gathered at M Hotel to learn from our stellar line-up of renowned industry practitioners, C-suite leaders and entrepreneurs from locally and internationally grown organizations. We also had industry visits arranged for our delegates to AI lab, Cybersecurity firm and SaaS as well as a financial institution.

Networking opportunities and the sharing of experiences by our speakers were organised and we had our webinars where FinTech professionals and mentors shared their technical expertise and tips on pitching and how to expand their network was covered by practitioners, leaders, and entrepreneurs.
Another milestone achievement by the Fintech Academy is the formation of the Healthcare Fintech Alliance (HFA) which began with Pfizer and Alibaba as the founding partners. AccessHEALTH and other partners joined the Alliance and it was a roaring success in the first 6 months of its life, which culminated in an inaugural virtual ASEAN CSR Network Conference for 600 delegates, officiated by 2 Ministers and Ambassadors, as well as prominent industry leaders. university faculty, and government officials from ASEAN. The webinars, Thirsty Thursdays, and Tech Tuesdays were excellent awareness sessions with strong thought leadership provided by our very knowledgeable leaders and experts in their field. We are humbled and very appreciative of the support by government and industry in our endeavour to do outreach and advocate innovation and provide mentorship opportunities with academic rigour for the ecosystem. especially the founders and start-ups. We are also very blessed with the opportunity to participate in the Singapore Fintech Festival 2020 to provide workshops at the Talent Pavillion and hosted a panel from 7th to 11th Dec 2020.
