About Flyover Fintech

Three years ago, two friends, Bill Udell and Ben Pankonin were friends who were dreaming about where the next billion-dollar companies in Nebraska would come from.

Knowing that many of the biggest success stories of the past 50 years have been in Fintech, they began gathering their friends to attend regional meetups. These events were hosted by fintechs, banks and creatives and focused around discussing thoughts and ideas around their companies. This network began to swell.

Flyover Fintech is the culmination of this vision — to bring fintechs, financial services and the innovators that drive these companies together — to strengthen each other, to strengthen the region and to be a global player for the next 50 years.
