Fintech Ecosystem Development Corp.The following discussion and analysis of the Company's financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with the unaudited condensed financial statements, and the notes thereto contained elsewhere in this report. Certain information contained in the discussion and analysis set forth below includes forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q includes forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"). We have based these forward-looking statements on our current expectations and projections about future events. These forward-looking statements are subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties, and assumptions about us that may cause our actual results, levels of activity, performance, or achievements to be materially different from any future results, levels of activity, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terminology such as "may," "should," "could," "would," "expect," "plan," "anticipate," "believe," "estimate," "continue," or the negative of such terms or other similar expressions. Factors that might cause or contribute to such a discrepancy include, but are not limited to, those described in our other U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission("SEC") filings. Overview We are a blank check company incorporated as a Delawarecorporation and formed for the purpose of effecting a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization, or similar business combination with one or more businesses. We have not selected any specific business combination target, and we have not, nor has anyone on our behalf, initiated any substantive discussions, directly or indirectly, with any business combination target. We intend to effectuate our initial business combination using cash from the proceeds of this offering and the private placement of the private placement warrants, our capital stock, debt, or a combination of cash, stock and debt. For additional detail regarding our initial public offering and related transactions, see "Note 1- Description Of Organization And Business Operations." The issuance of additional shares of our stock in a business combination: • may significantly dilute the equity interest of investors in this offering; • may subordinate the rights of holders of common stock if preferred stock is issued with rights senior to those afforded our common stock; • could cause a change of control if a substantial number of shares of our common stock are issued, which may affect, among other things, our ability to use our net operating loss carry forwards, if any, and could result in the resignation or removal of our present officers and directors; • may have the effect of delaying or preventing a change of control of us by diluting the stock ownership or voting rights of a person seeking to obtain control of us; and • may adversely affect prevailing market prices for our common stock, rights, and/or warrants. Similarly, if we issue debt securities, it could result in: • default and foreclosure on our assets if our operating revenues after an initial business combination are insufficient to repay our debt obligations; • acceleration of our obligations to repay the indebtedness even if we make all principal and interest payments when due if we breach certain covenants that require the maintenance of certain financial ratios or reserves without a waiver or renegotiation of such covenants; • our immediate payment of all principal and accrued interest, if any, if the debt security is payable on demand; • our inability to obtain necessary additional financing if the debt security contains covenants restricting our ability to obtain such financing while the debt security is outstanding; • our inability to pay dividends on our common stock; • using a substantial portion of our cash flow to pay principal and interest on our debt, which will reduce the funds available for dividends on our common stock if declared, expenses, capital expenditures, acquisitions, and other general corporate purposes; • limitations on our flexibility in planning for and reacting to changes in our business and in the industry in which we operate; • increased vulnerability to adverse changes in general economic, industry, and competitive conditions and adverse changes in government regulation; and • limitations on our ability to borrow additional amounts for expenses, capital expenditures, acquisitions, debt service requirements, execution of our strategy and other purposes, and other disadvantages compared to our competitors who have less debt.

Table of Contents Recent Developments Initial Public Offering On
October 21, 2021, Fintech Ecosystem Development Corp.(the "Company") consummated its initial public offering (the "IPO") of 11,500,000 units (the "Units"), including the issuance of 1,500,000 Units as a result of the underwriters' exercise of their over-allotment option. Each Unit consists of one share of Class A common stock of the Company, par value of $0.0001per share ("Class A Common Stock"), one right of the Company (a"Right") and one-half of one redeemable warrant of the Company (a"Warrant"). The Units were sold at a price of $10.00per Unit, generating gross proceeds to the Company of $115,000,000. Substantially concurrently with the closing of the IPO, the Company completed the sale, in a private placement, of 3,900,250 warrants (the "Private Placement Warrants"), to the Company's sponsor, Revofast LLC, at an aggregate price of, and generating gross proceeds to the Company of, $3,900,250, $2,923,400of which was placed in the trust account referred to in Item 8.01. The Private Placement Warrants will not be transferable, assignable, or salable until 30 days after the Company's initial business combination and will have certain registration rights. Liquidity and Capital Resources As of September 30, 2021, and prior to the completion of the Initial Public Offering, the Company lacked the liquidity it needed to sustain operations for a reasonable period of time. The Company has since completed its Initial Public Offering in October 2021as described above and had approximately $801,000of working capital immediately after the offering. In addition, in order to finance transaction costs in connection with a Business Combination, the Sponsor or an affiliate of the Sponsor, or certain of the Company's officers and directors may, but are not obligated to, provide the Company Working Capital Loans. As of September 30, 2021, no amounts were outstanding under any Working Capital Loan. Based on the foregoing, management believes that the Company will have sufficient working capital and borrowing capacity to meet its needs through the earlier of the consummation of a Business Combination or one year from this filing. Over this time period, the Company will be using the funds held outside of the Trust Account for paying existing accounts payable, identifying and evaluating prospective initial Business Combination candidates, performing due diligence on prospective target businesses, paying for travel expenditures, selecting the target business to merge with or acquire, and structuring, negotiating and consummating the Business Combination. Management continues to evaluate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and has concluded that the specific impact is not readily determinable as of the date of the financial statements. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty. Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements; Commitments and Contractual Obligations; Quarterly Results As of September 30, 2021, we did not have any off-balance sheet arrangements as defined in Item 303(a)(4)(ii) of Regulation S-K and did not have any commitments or contractual obligations. No unaudited quarterly operating data is included in this prospectus as we have conducted no operations to date. Results of Operations We have neither engaged in any operations nor generated any revenues to date. Our only activities since inception have been organizational activities and those necessary to prepare for our initial public offering. We will not be generating any operating revenues until the closing and completion of our initial business combination. For the three months ended September 30, 2021, we had no operating activities during the period. From March 5, 2021(inception) to September 30, 2021, we had a net loss of $933, which was primarily driven by business incorporation costs. Related Party Transactions Please refer to Note 5, Related Party Transactions, in "Part 1. Financial Information - Item 1. Financial Statements" for a discussion of our related party transactions. Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates Our management makes a number of significant estimates, assumptions, and judgments in the preparation of our financial statements. See "Note 2, Summary of Significant Accounting Policies , in "Part 1. Financial Information - Item 1. Financial Statements" for a discussion of the estimates and judgments necessary in our accounting for common stock subject to possible redemption and net income (loss) per common share. Any new accounting policies or updates to existing accounting policies as a result of new accounting pronouncements have been included in the notes to our condensed financial statements contained in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. The application of our critical accounting policies may require management to make judgments and estimates about the amounts reflected in the condensed financial statements. Management uses historical experience and all available information to make these estimates and judgments. Different amounts could be reported using different assumptions and estimates. Recent Accounting Standards Please refer to Note 2, Summary of Significant Accounting Policies , in "Part 1. Financial Information - Item 1. Financial Statements" for a discussion of recent accounting pronouncements and their anticipated effect on our business. JOBS Act The JOBS Act contains provisions that, among other things, relax certain reporting requirements for qualifying public companies. We qualify as an "emerging growth company" and, under the JOBS Act, are allowed to comply with new or revised accounting pronouncements based on the effective date for private (not publicly traded) companies. We are electing to delay the adoption of new or revised accounting standards, and as a result, we may not comply with new or revised accounting standards on the relevant dates on which adoption of such standards is required for non-emerging growth companies. As a result, our financial statements may not be comparable to companies that comply with new or revised accounting pronouncements as of public company effective dates. Additionally, we are in the process of evaluating the benefits of relying on the other reduced reporting requirements provided by the JOBS Act. Subject to certain conditions set forth in the JOBS Act, if, as an "emerging growth company," we choose to rely on such exemptions, we may not be required to, among other things, (i) provide an auditor's attestation report on our system of internal control over financial reporting pursuant to Section 404 of the Sarbanes Oxley Act, (ii) provide all of the compensation disclosure that may be required of non-emerging growth public companies under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, (iii) comply with any requirement that the PCAOB may adopt regarding mandatory audit firm rotation or a supplement to the auditor's report providing additional information about the audit and the financial statements (auditor discussion and analysis), and (iv) disclose certain executive compensation related items such as the correlation between executive compensation and performance and comparisons of the CEO's compensation to median employee compensation. These exemptions will apply for five years following the completion of our initial public offering or until we are no longer an "emerging growth company," whichever is earlier. 16
