RegTech Boston

A community devoted to extreme collaboration as a means to drive change.

Who doesn’t like talking about RegTech?

Join the Boston RegTech Community

Well, that’s what we thought when we brought together Chuck Senatore and a group of inspiring RegTech entrepreneurs and former regulators to form RegTech Boston. RegTech is on the rise, with regulators open to change, incumbents seeking change, and startups providing change.

RegTech Boston brings together a community of entrepreneurs, executives, and regulators interested in helping firms evolve and address regulatory and compliance obligations. Our goal is to build a community devoted to “extreme collaboration” as a means to increase the speed and efficiency of innovation.

Join us for quarterly conversations to hear key perspectives from—and to connect with—subject matter experts and leaders in the field.

RegTech Boston is founded in partnership with Peter Butterfield (General Counsel & Chief Compliance Officer, Flywire), Jonah Crane (Executive Director, RegTech Lab), Rachel Feely-Kohl (Community Director, F-Prime Capital), Meredith Moss (CEO, Finomial), John Papandrea (Assistant General Counsel, Flywire), Chuck Senatore (Head of Risk Oversight, Devonshire Investors / Fidelity Investments) and Matthew Van Buskirk (Co-Founder and CEO, Hummingbird RegTech).
