The Future of AI and Finance: Learn from a Fintech Startup Success Story [August 2023]

The Miami AI Club hosted its second meetup on Thursday, August 3, 2023, and it was the first in-person event since the pandemic. The meetup was a huge success, with more than 40 attendees joining the lively and interactive session. The club had to rearrange the conference room to accommodate everyone, thanks to the generous support of Center for Social Change, Ivan Dynamo De Jesus, Will and Elvis.

The speaker of the night was Yoel Gavlovski, the founder and CEO of QUASH, a solution that uses auto-machine learning and alternative data points to assess credit applicants for financial institutions. Yoel shared his story of how he started his company, why he chose this problem, what challenges he faced, how he acquired his first customers, how he scaled his business, and more. He also answered many questions from the audience, who were curious about his technology, his vision, and his advice for aspiring entrepreneurs.

I was the moderator and Sara Zargaran helped with the logistics and coordination of the event.

The meetup attracted a diverse group of people who are interested in artificial intelligence, such as full stack developers, data scientists, IT managers, founders, CEOs, tech evangelists, and more. The attendees had a lot of brainstorming and interesting conversations that were recorded and published on YouTube. The event lasted for more than four hours, even though it was scheduled to end by 9 pm. The energy and enthusiasm in the room were palpable and contagious.
