Branch Event

Success in FinTech: The highs & lows of the rise of a CEO

23 Jul 2019
Rise, London

The Tech sector has been dominated by the term FinTech for so many years now, but what has it been like to be part of that journey? From back-end systems to consumer-oriented services, its effects have been felt across the sectors.

The most talked-about (and most funded) fintech startups share the same characteristic: they are designed to be a threat to, challenge, and eventually usurp entrenched traditional financial services providers by being more nimble, serving an underserved segment or providing faster and/or better service. We ask our panel what it has been like to be part of it all so far, and how they individually got there.

Join the Young Executives of IoD City of London branch for a cutting-edge discussion on Fintech with some of the most prominent Fintec CEOs at the most appropriate of venues, Barclays flagship innovation centre and largest FinTech co-working space in Europe, Rise - home to around 40 of London’s most exciting FinTech companies. What better place to come to for the story so far.

After the panel discussion there will be opportunities for Q & A’s, followed by a drinks reception.

The event is kindly hosted by Rise, Barclays.
