ABOUT SFF PAYS IT FORWARD

In these extraordinary times when the industry is looking for guidance to navigate through the storm, we wanted to provide a platform to bring together mentorship from industry experts to provide support on specific topics. SFF Pays It Forward is a platform for experts from the FinTech sector to offer mentorship and guidance to those who would it find it most useful. An extension of our SFF Green Shoots sessions, which are weekly e-meetups to provide practical advice and light relief to the FinTech industry, SFF Pays It Forward facilitates one-on-one sessions with experts to deep-dive on specific advice for FinTech individuals and companies.

Guidelines for Engagement

These sessions are meant to offer mentorship and advice to those who require it, and not for sales calls. Do recognise that these experts are offering up their valuable time for these sessions, so we hope that you will take the time to engage in a fruitful dialogue within their area of expertise.

When booking slots with the mentors, please come with a problem statement that you wish to address during the session. Each session is set at half-hour by default, but you can appeal for more if you require more time (e.g. to explain the problem, or if technical assistance is required).
