The Future Generation Of FinTech
We had the pleasure of working with a group of students from the McCombs School of Business at the University of Texas during their recent fall semester as part of their Financial Technology (FinTech) Practicum Course. The undergraduate students were provided with a hands-on learning opportunity working with local Fintech companies in Austin that are driven by Ernst & Young.
The purpose of the program was for the students to provide problem-solving solutions for the current and future needs of the company they selected. At the conclusion of the semester, the students presented their findings and provided actionable steps for implementation.
The students were not the only ones who benefitted from this, however. ePayPolicy also received insights on a variety of topics such as Google’s latest SEO algorithm, a complete chatbot analysis across the industry, and a detailed market research report on areas and verticals to explore / expand in 2020. When the students weren’t working on these projects they were helping with small tasks around the office and finding solutions for minor problems affecting the ePayPolicy team.
Working with these students was an amazing opportunity and we were humbled to be selected by them and EY. We look forward to continuing to contribute to this program in the months to come and appreciate the effort given from the future generation of FinTech.
