Dara Albright is a recognized authority, thought provoker and frequent speaker on topics relating to fintech, digital-, peer- & crowd- finance.
Albright has held a distinguished 26 year career in IPO execution, investment banking, corporate communications, financial marketing as well as institutional and retail sales. She is a visionary who continues to introduce modern technologies, tools and investment products to the financial community.
Albright was one of the earliest voices covering the JOBS Act and advocating for greater democracy in the equity and credit markets. She produced the nation’s very first crowdfunding conference in January 2012 which was headlined by key JOBS Act architects: Congressman Patrick McHenry and Dave Weild. That event helped birth the crowdfinance movement and led to the establishment of the industry’s trade and leadership organizations – which she co-founded.
In 2013, she co-founded LendIt, the largest and most recognized global p2p & online lending conference organization. In 2015, she co-founded FinFair, the first conference platform to feature the leadership, products and technologies driving the crowd-centric retail alternatives market. In 2016, she founded FinTechREVOLUTION.tv, a groundbreaking online financial channel for the masses that highlights how technology is being employed to make personal finance and retirement planning interesting, entertaining, simple and interactive. Some of the most prominent figures in the fintech industry as well as the legislature continue to participate in Albright’s programs.
Her leading-edge articles and white papers that have helped shape and continue to set the direction of the crowdfinance and fintech industries can be found on BanklessTimes, Equities.com, Crowdfund Insider, Crowdfund Beat, Seeking Alpha, Investing.com, FINalternatives, Real Assets Adviser, CNBC and Business Insider. Albright has been featured in the NY Times, Forbes, Huffington Post, ABA Banking Journal, Thestreet.com, Private Wealth Magazine as well as in a number of leading industry trade publications.
Albright continues to help issuers, investors as well as financial service providers across the globe capitalize during this unprecedented period of financial industry disruption and regulatory reform.
