MK Decision's (MK) Co-founder and CEO Har Rai Khalsa and Chief Revenue Officer Jon BenAmoz had the pleasure of showcasing MK’s loan origination and deposit account creation system at Startup Grind’s Global 2020 Conference in Silicon Valley, CA. Out of 4,000 applicants from 133 countries, MK was one of the 323 startups selected to exhibit our world-class banking solutions to over 10,000 attendees. According to Startup Grind’s website, Global 2020 is a “community unlike any other” brimming with technology pioneers, industry leaders, and organizations at the forefront of innovation from across the world.

From distinguished companies like Google and Facebook, Silicon Valley has become a nexus for those with a passion for technology. The area emits an intangible energy because of the organizations it comprises; we could not have asked for a better location to be in throughout this unique conference.

Rome was not built in a day, and neither are tech companies.

One of our biggest opportunities for growth was networking with various angel investors and venture capital firms looking for the next bright company to spearhead the future of technology.

“Triumphing as an industry collective with those connections we have made and those we will make in the future is what this conference is all about.” - Har Rai Khalsa

Out of the many startups present, only a handful were building financial technology. Despite this, the promise in our ecosystem is undeniable, and we were honored to represent such a thriving industry. As we discussed our traction in credit card origination and the launch of our online deposit account opening solutions with those outside of our market, we gained insight on how to improve the user experience for financial institutions.

During the course of the two day conference, we met with hundreds of entrepreneurs, technologists, investors, and university students, laying the foundation for collaborative partnerships in the future. With so many conversations surrounding banking, it is hard not to come out inspired. Thank you to Startup Grind for hosting this impactful event and for inviting us to showcase our loan and deposit account origination system with the global community. We are thankful to have had this opportunity and are excited for what the future holds for us and the startups that attended.
