Cities all over the world have aspirations in financial technology, so why not Little Rock? The Arkansas capital's entry into this world was helped by Fidelity National Information Services, or FIS, a $9.2 billion-in-revenue fintech company that mentors entrepreneurs and hooks them up with funding sources and potential customers. When in May FIS and Little Rock's Venture Center announced the ten startups selected for a 12-week program to accelerate the development of their financial innovations, FIS president and chief executive officer Gary Norcross, 52, said it was "a great example of how we are harnessing the spirit of entrepreneurship." In December, FIS brought several companies into its newly created high-potential network, hoping to bring "new innovations to market in an efficient and practical manner," said Norcross, who has a bachelor of science in business administration from the University of Arkansas. He has been CEO of Jacksonville, Florida-based FIS since January 2015.
