The Northeast Florida FinTech Initiative represents a partnership between Florida State College at Jacksonville and St. Johns River State College, regional schools, nonprofits and numerous financial services companies to provide new financial technology, or “FinTech” training and certification opportunities in topics such as blockchain, mobile applications, machine learning and cloud-based data management.

This innovative collaboration to provide new FinTech-related training and certifications will help equip Floridians with skills in demand by Northeast Florida’s growing FinTech industry.

The FinTech Initiative will also include the creation of a new externship program and working connections program. These programs will provide leaders of nearby K-12 schools with valuable skills and information needed to introduce students to the FinTech industry and will offer real-world industry experiences to College faculty.
