Partnership between FinTech School and PayTech Academy
FinTech School and PayTech Academy Announce Partnership to Increase the Talent Pool in the Payment Industry and Foster More Innovation
SAN FRANCISCO, California and DUBLIN, Ireland – June 19th, 2019 – FinTech School and PayTech Academy today announced an integration between the two knowledge providers, leading to the availability of deeper payment technology content to FinTech School’s students and of broader financial technology content to PayTech Academy’s students.
The integration between FinTech School’s financial technology courses in areas such as A.I. in Fintech, InsurTech, Alternative Lending, Crowdfunding or Robo-Advisors, and PayTech Academy’s practical courses on card payment and transaction processing allows financial institutions, payment companies and technology providers to better absorb the growth that the industry is still experiencing while preparing for the cross-silo collaboration that will build the cornerstone of their future successes.
The payment industry remains dynamic and continues to break new grounds, with more and more emerging countries contributing to its global revenue pool. However, the war for talent, exacerbated by the rapid expansion of connected technology in nearly every industry, is negatively impacting payment companies of all sizes and in all regions in their ability to retain or hire the people with the right knowledge to ensure that operations go undisrupted and that a bottom-up innovation culture can be fostered.
Having instant access to a wealth of knowledge brings a key strategic advantage to those organizations in enabling them to quickly regenerate their pool of talent. The partnership between FinTech School and PayTech Academy is designed to help incumbents and entrants fast track their hiring process to service their immediate needs, while broadening their employees’ vision to help them identify innovation opportunities across boundaries.
“It is my pleasure to announce that our payment technology courses can be accessed from the FinTech School. We currently make a positive impact, especially in regions where this kind of knowledge is difficult or too expensive to access, and we are confident that the FinTech School’s wider network and distinctive approach to knowledge sharing will turn our combined value proposition into a catalyst for innovation in the global payment industry”, said Herve Zenner, managing director at PayTech Academy.
“We are excited about this partnership as it provides us with access to a wider regional distribution and deepens our curriculum with much needed payments courses”, said Amilcar Chavarria, FinTech School CEO.
The integration of payment technology courses is already available on FinTech School’s e-learning platform. Financial technology courses are available from PayTech Academy.
About FinTech School
FinTech is shaping the future of finance and global banking with technology. Financial Institutions want to evolve, but need help incorporating FinTech into their business model. Technology professionals want to help Financial Institutions get ready for Finance 2.0, but often lack adequate business context. Entrepreneurs are trying to disrupt existing business models, but need help turning their ideas into viable products and/or solutions. This is where we come in.
About PayTech Academy
PayTech Academy was created from the belief that everyone in the payment industry should be allowed to reach an expert level in the areas that they are interested in. We understand that access to experts is difficult, even when you work in the same company, because those skills are rare and make those people extremely busy.
We strive to provide a solution for two major issues in the payment industry: recruiting experienced staff in a market where the barrier to entry is high and therefore has a shortage of those people, and upskilling people who’ve moved internally within an organization.
Our aim is to provide the world with hands-on courses that take our students from where they are to a level of deep technical understanding in very specific areas.
