FinTech North Virtual Leeds Conference

Date: 25 February 2021

Time: 10:00 - 16:24

Location: Online


open invitation

Following the success of our Virtual Manchester Conference on the 12th November 2020, FinTech North is delighted to host our first Virtual Leeds Conference on the 25th February 2021.

In light of the current situation, the event will be hosted virtually in a webinar format, taking place as a half-day event starting at 10:00 on 25th February.

Last year’s Leeds conference attracted over 350 registrations but the event was neither streamed nor recorded, so attendees had to physically be in Leeds. This year’s event will be able to reach a wider audience and will also be recorded for people who register but cannot attend on the event date.

Ron Kalifa, OBE will cover the independent FinTech Strategic Review which aims to establish priority areas for industry, policy makers, and regulators to explore in order to support the ongoing success of the UK FinTech sector.

Eve Roodhouse will speak about the Leeds City Region FinTech ecosystem and will update our community on some of Leeds City Council’s fantastic work in FinTech, Tech and beyond.

Paul Stoddart (President New Payment Platforms, Mastercard) will talk about the Future of Payments, covering topics such as digital ID, open banking and the role of blockchain.

We’re looking forward to welcoming a range of locally based FinTechs, including several who are new to FinTech North, as part of our Leeds FinTech Showcase, pitching their proposition and presenting innovations to our community.

Tickets for the conference can be accessed free of charge via Eventbrite, where voluntary donations are also an option for those who wish to support FinTech North’s ongoing efforts to support the northern FinTech community.
