Atlanta-based creative marketing agency Surthrive is hosting a dynamic panel discussion Thursday focused on managing your personal and professional finances.

Aptly entitled Power Talk: Money Moves, the interactive forum led by emerging Fintech founders puts the spotlight on taking control of your finances, becoming debt free, and creating generational wealth.

“Money Moves takes you beyond securing the bag,’ says Surthrive founder Justin McLeod. “The event will explore creative practices, easy-to-use tools, and tangible tactics that this generation [millennials] can apply immediately in their daily financial journey as an entrepreneur, corporate hustler, or creative.”

Panelists include Christian Zimmerman, co-founder and CEO of Qoins; Sheena Allen, founder of CapWay; Alok Deshpande, president of SmartPath; and Dr. Nicole Garner Scott, CEO of Amount Financial. Shea Taylor, Business Relationship Manager of JP Morgan Chase Bank, will moderate the discussion and Q&A.

“Events like Surthrive’s PowerTalk are so important because it not only focuses on the diversity within the Atlanta tech ecosystem but also shows the importance of financial literacy within your personal life and when starting a business,” says Zimmerman.

It comes as studies show that across the board in America, debt is on the rise. Still, millennials have a particularly tough time, especially because of student loan debt.

Attendees will walk away actionable takeaways on everything from generating multiple sources of income to making life-changing investments. There will also be the opportunity to network with like-minded individuals in a power hour of networking that will include light refreshments.

Prior to and after the panel discussion, local Fintech startups along with sponsors and financial service vendors will have the opportunity to showcase, demo and/or sell their products and services.

Power Talk: Money Moves takes place on Thursday, May 2nd, 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm at WeWork – Tower Place. Interested in attending? Get your tickets here today while they last.
