Relentless Individuals coming together with regulators to develop a leading development institution comprising investment platform, thinktank and ecosystem
Fintech Nation Ecosystem

Fintech Nation™ was founded as a grassroots platform by Varun Mittal to bring together the fintech community, regulators, investors, startups, and corporates. It started in 2020 with the development of the Fintech Nation book and supports access to and scaling talent, capital, policy, and venture development in Singapore. It has recognized over 400 individuals through the Fintech 65 & Superhuman platform. It invested in multiple startups through the Fintech Nation Fund, Fintech Nation Angels and Fintech Nation Debt Fund.


Over the years, Fintech Nation has evolved from a grassroots platform to a specialized development institution comprising an investment platform, think tank, and ecosystem builder that supports startups, angel investors, financial institutions, practitioners, and policymakers. 


Fintech nation's three key objectives are democratizing access, digitizing the economy, and delivering outcomes through its three pillars: investment platform, think tank, and ecosystem builder. FN aspires to build an open, inclusive, and transformative society where everyone has the tools and support to thrive in a rapidly changing world."
