About Amplify

The first step in achieving our industry’s full potential is sparking an industry-wide diversity and inclusion movement, and that spark starts at Money20/20 USA. To ensure that this community serves as an agent of change for the wider fintech and financial services landscape, we created Amplify. Through this four-day, curated program, we'll raise visibility and cultivate connections for minorities & underrepresented groups in the industry.

The Amplify program focuses on:

  • Exposure: Utilizing the Money20/20 global platform as a catalyst to present participants to the fintech community.
  • Access: Exclusive access to forward thinking leaders and idea sharing conversations.
  • Building Connections: Establishing genuine networks that foster solid business relationships.
  • Leadership Development: Business/leadership coaching sessions specifically tailored for the cohort.

"The Amplify program was great. The recognition received amongst your peers is always appreciated and for me it provided me access to a conference with a wealth of domain experts and industry leaders I hadn’t yet encountered in person. Most of all it gave me community, the individuals I connected with through the program I am still in contact with and plan to continue to not just build strong working relationships but lifelong friendships. I look forward to being a resource for the next cohort."

"Amplify was such an empowering moment for me - because I was able to surround myself with inspiring voices doing incredible work, and because it allowed me to connect with a deeply important aspect of my identity as a Latina founder. I appreciate the opportunity to bring my whole self to our industry, and even more so when a group of us rises together. This is only the beginning of what I hope is a momentous change in the visibility of BIPOC across the financial sector."

Lucía Gallardo

Founder & CEO


"Being selected for Money 20/20’s Amplify program in 2021 allowed me to network with other professionals and executives in Fintech that I might not have met. It is always great to meet others in the Fintech ecosystem who look like you and understand your journey of color. I came back even more motivated to continue to ensure my company is helping to build a more inclusive future in financial services and beyond"
