Our group is a community of technology professionals in the Alternative Finance space. Many of us are the sole technology professional at our organization, but all of us are personally boots on the ground technologists familiar with the joys and sorrows that come with running tech in this industry. By sharing our knowledge and experiences we each become better at what we do.


We do not solicit new members. Nor do we accept membership requests. Applications for new members may only be submitted by an existing member, and invitations are only extended to those we believe will add and receive value as a member.
