Women in FinTech Speed Mentoring: with Augmentum FinTech

Date: 08 January 2020

Time: 18:00 - 20:00

Location: Tide, White Bear Yard, 144A Clerkenwell Road, London EC1R 5DF

open invitation

Innovate Finance and Augmentum Fintech are delighted to announce their Women in Fintech: Speed Mentoring event, the first of its kind, hosted by Tide and taking place on Wednesday 8th January.

Why speed-mentoring?

The importance of mentoring can’t be overstated in boosting diversity and inclusion in an industry that still has a long way to go in these areas. Women represent just 29% of the fintech workforce, 17% of senior fintech roles and of the $1.7 billion that flowed into UK fintech firms in 2018, only 3% went to firms with a female founder [ref].


The Speed Mentoring evening will be a high-energy opportunity for women working in fintech to kick off the New Year by sharing challenges and exchanging ideas or advice, meeting a large number of people in a short space of time.


Places are limited so please register your interest to attend as either a mentor or mentee as soon as possible.

More information and guidance can be found on the registration page.
