About this Event

If there’s one sector that continues to both delight and surprise while demonstrating inexorable growth and edge-of-your-seat innovation, it’s fintech.

Though the financial industry is largely associated with some of the biggest banks and financial institutions in the world, fintech is one of the few industries where small startups can compete on the same level as the established finance behemoths – even in fiercely competitive markets.

But it’s hard, right? From building credibility and trust to fundraising, we understand the challenges facing fintech entrepreneurs in the current climate – and we want to help


That’s where our 💸 Fintech Club 💸 comes in.


Brought to you by London & Partners and the Mayor’s International Business Programme, this new series of enriching closed-door meetings and virtual networking opportunities brings together our community of entrepreneurs, investors, partners, mentors and industry experts, whose common goal is to solve some of the biggest challenges in financial services through technology.


During our first meet-up in November, we heard from some fantastic keynote speakers and were joined by our partners Microsoft, KPMG and Lloyds to discuss the power of partnerships, how to demonstrate value, navigating procurement procedures, international expansion + more!


📅 Our next session on 19 January will continue this theme of being ‘fintech-ready’ and ‘partner-ready’, as we’re joined by leading fintech entrepreneurs and speakers from both financial institutions and industry bodies for an open, transparent and highly interactive session.
