About TechTalks

An initiative led by the Rotman Commerce FinTech Association, TechTalks is a podcast which brings in experts for interviews from the many branches of Tech - ranging from FinTech to Sports Analytics

Our Beginnings

Originally, TechTalks was launched as a wider scope project with workshops, keynotes, panel sessions, as well as podcasts, with the aim being to create an opportunity for students to engage with industry professionals to understand technology’s growing impact on the financial sector. Due to restrictions brought about by COVID-19, we have continued only with the podcast portion of the original vision, whilst also expanding our topics to go beyond FinTech, and into Technology as a whole.

Our Goal

We aim to deliver engaging and enjoyable tech related podcasts to guide business undergraduates (and beyond) on the increasing importance of tech in the business world


Our Past Partners

With our commitment to bring expert insight, we have had industry leading guest speakers from RBC Global Asset Management, BMO Wealth Management, and the Toronto Stock Exchange to name a few. Expect the list to grow in the coming months!
