keynote speaker

Jaspreet Singh

Founder of Minority Mindset

Jaspreet Singh is a serial entrepreneur, licensed attorney, and the founder of Minority Mindset, a financial media company & YouTube Channel with over 900,000 subscribers.

Jaspreet Singh is an attorney, investor, and entrepreneur. Although he didn’t receive any formal financial education – he’s on a mission to make financial education fun and accessible.

Jaspreet is the CEO of Minority Mindset – a financial media companyThe Minority Mindset YouTube channel has changed the lives of nearly 1,000,000 YouTube subscribers with their videos being viewed 5 million times a month.

Jaspreet is self-taught. His parents are immigrants from the state of Punjab, India. Like many of his second generation Indians, Jaspreet grew up thinking that he needed to become a doctor. But he found a new path. He started his first business – an event planning company – when he was in college.

However, Jaspreet didn’t see a future with that company. After graduating college, Jaspreet pursued law school where he continued his entrepreneurial and financial ventures.

He started by investing in real estate. But he quickly realized that if we wanted to continue investing in real estate, he’d need access to more capital. So, Jaspreet jumped back into entrepreneurship.

After a couple years of research, Jaspreet invented a water-resistant athletic sock.

During the launch of his sock company, he was scammed by a marketing company which cost him thousands of dollars. This scam pushed him to start an educational social media page, which he called Minority Mindset. The Minority Mindset implies thinking differently than the majority of people. It’s not a racial minority.

He started Minority Mindset as a hobby just to teach others how to not make the same mistakes he made.

This social media page eventually grew into a YouTube Channel. Around the time when his YouTube Channel hit 100,000 subscribers – his sock patent was denied. At this point, he was forced to make a decision…

Continue with the sock company, or pursue Minority Mindset?

The sock company was profitable while Minority Mindset was not. He decided to follow his passion and pursued Minority Mindset full time after graduating law school.

Now Minority Mindset has grown into a full media company. His company is completely bootstrapped. As he likes to say, YouTube funds his business. He uses his viral YouTube channel’s revenue to fund and grow Minority Mindset.

His brand has helped countless people get out of debt, start investing, and create a plan towards building wealth.

FinCon Central is the hub of the FinCon experience, and this year it will take place both live and virtually. It includes exhibits, live podcasting, video booths, and more! Our partnering brands will be there to network and meet with you, so plan to take advantage of this time to grow your network and do business.

We intentionally design FinCon so that you get as much real value from the experience as you can, and FinCon Central is a key part of that value. It’s a high-energy place to discover platform solutions, collaborate with other creators, and meet in person or virtually with potential sponsors.

Don’t just take our word for it

pro Networking

And Why I should Upgrade

Pro Networking is an exclusive networking opportunity where Pro Pass holders and brands schedule mutually-beneficial meetings. The goal is to connect Pro level attendees to the companies and brands they want to do business with. Whether you’re a content creator or a brand who is attending in person in Austin or at home, you can still participate in these meetings.

Pro Networking events are only included with the #FinCon21 Pro Pass. 

Can't decide which pass is for you?

In this video, the FinCon Team explains all three pass options and who we think is the best fit for each.

Personal finance enthusiast but not a content creator?

The #FinCon21 Community Pass is intended for people outside of the industry with a passionate interest in personal finance and/or investing.

Swag Pack

Add-On

At FinCon, we take our swag seriously! The Swag Pack includes a limited edition #FinCon21 t-shirt as well as a few smaller swag items. If your pass is virtual, it will be mailed to you. If you are coming to Austin, you can pick yours up there. Add it onto your pass at the time of purchase.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

[Updated on 05.25.21] We are following the lead of the City of Austin, Austin Public Health, and the Austin Convention Center for all COVID-related safety precautions.On May 18, 2021, the City of Austin moved into Stage 2, and the Austin Convention Center is currently operating at 35%.  We will continue to update as we receive new information and projections for our event in September.

Additionally, the FinCon Team is planning the event schedule and space with Covid measures in mind. We’ve adjusted #FinCon21 programming to allow for fewer tracks in larger spaces in Austin. We’re also currently working with our expo services company to design a more spacious approach to FinCon Central.

Because a lot can change between now and September, we will continue to update attendees as additional information is available.

We do not offer refunds for #FinCon21 passes. If you are unsure you can attend in person in Austin in September, you can purchase a virtual pass and upgrade to an in-person pass before the upgrade window closes this summer.

In years past, we’ve offered attendees the courtesy option to sell your pass to someone else and transfer it for a $50 admin fee. If you weren’t able to attend, there wasn’t an alternative event option. However, since #FinCon21 is a hybrid event and offers the option to attend virtually–something we’ve never had before–we will not have the ticket exchange option.

For those who transferred their passes from #FinCon2020, you’ll be given the option to choose whether you want your pass to be an Austin pass or a virtual pass in July.

If you transferred your pass from 2020, you have the same pass for 2021 that you registered for in 2020. (Ex: If you registered for a basic pass for #FinCon2020, you have a basic pass for #FinCon21.) In the Fall, you should have received an email from TicketSpice when your pass was transferred. If you did not, email us at  admin@finconexpo.com and we’ll look it up for you.

For planning purposes, we will reach out to all existing pass holders (transfers from #FinCon2020 OR those who purchased in the exclusive sale after #FinConX) in the coming months to find out if you’ll be using your pass to attend either virtually or in person.

Not a problem! Your pass will still give you access to all of the virtual event. Unfortunately, we will not be able to refund you the difference in price, though.

Not a problem! You can email us at admin@finconexpo.com to upgrade your pass.

Good news! If you transferred your pass from #FinCon2020 OR if you purchased your pass in the exclusive sale after #FinConX, you automatically get lifetime access to all #FinCon21 digital recordings. You do not need to purchase the lifetime access.

Yes, there will be a window in which you can upgrade your pass from virtual to in-person. The deadline will be some time this summer, but we have not announced a date yet. We will email all pass holders to make sure they have plenty of time to make the upgrade decision, if they so choose.

Good news! If you transferred your pass from #FinCon2020 OR if you purchased your pass in the exclusive sale after #FinConX, you automatically get the swag pack (including the limited edition #FinCon21 t-shirt) with your pass. You do not need to purchase an additional swag pack.

We have a small room block at the Hilton Austin for #FinCon21 at a discounted rate. The hotel is across the street from the Austin Convention Center and easily accessible if you need to run back to your room during the day.

There are a limited number of rooms available on this FinCon-official block, so we suggest booking yours today.

Access the room block.
