FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich., April 1, 2019 -- Kyyba Innovations, in partnership with TechTown Detroit, launches the second series of "Detroit Fintech Challenge" to identify game-changing innovations in the financial services industry. The Detroit Fintech Challenge is an annual event where early-stage startups and entrepreneurs network and work collaboratively to solve corporations’ most pressing financial technology-related problems and interests, and then present them in a competitive style pitch competition. This year Detroit Fintech Challenge (DFC), is happening Saturday, August 3, 2019, at TechTown in Detroit.

DFC will bring together entrepreneurs, coders, developers, and other key players and creative minds from across the region to generate enduring solutions to address critical fintech challenges.
