We will be showcasing the FinTech for Schools web app on May 1st, the last day of UK FinTech Week and part of this will include a panel discussion about Inspiring the Next Generation of FinTech. The discussion will be moderated by Charlotte Crosswell, CEO of Innovate Finance.
The session will kick off at 3pm and include a mini-video presentation that will give a flavour of the web app and our aspirations for it, and how it fits alongside the wider FinTech for Schools initiative, followed by a 20 minute panel discussion and audience Q&A.
The discussion will broadly cover why it is so important to inspire, educate, encourage and deliver real change for young people, why financial literacy, wellbeing and inclusion are so important for teenagers and young people, especially given the circumstances we are currently living through right now.
