Why is London the focus for fintech?
Background:There’s a new hybrid market emerging called FinTech. It is a market populated by many technology firms who want to change the financial system and is, to a certain extent, resisted by the incumbent system who would rather keep things exactly as they are. The problem is that no-one can keep things as they are, thanks to the fast cycle changes technology delivery, and therefore how can the banks and, more importantly, London as a banking centre, capitalise on these changes? To find out, we have invited one of the FinTech leaders in Europe, Nektarios Liolios, to join us at the Financial Services Club for a fascinating discussion about what it takes to succeed in the New World.
Nektarios is Managing Director of Startupbootcamp FinTech, a leading innovation program in the financial industry, providing funding, mentorship, office space in the heart of London and access to a global network of investors and VCs, for up to 10 selected FinTech startups.
More than 15 years in the business, the last three with Innotribe, SWIFT's initiative to enable collaborative innovation and running the Innotribe Startup Challenge.
