FinTech Conferences and Events in London – Best of 2016
With start-up friendly regulation, access to capital and a dynamic and innovative workforce London’s FinTech scene is stronger than ever, easily fending off claims of being just another tech bubble.
Over the last 5 years only 19 UK tech firms have raised at least $100 mln however this will soon change with London still ahead of the rest of the world and hot on the heels of our transatlantic cousins in the US. With the ‘Silicon roundabout’ thriving, helped in part by its proximity to the City, London is one of the FinTech hotspots of the world where ideas, vision and backing mean that financial technology is pushed further and goalposts constantly move.
The FinTech industry, including P2P lending, personal finance, cutting edge payment mechanisms, pay per use insurance, bitcoins, etc…, will continue to grow with London Mayor Boris Johnson and UK chancellor George Osborne making it part of the government manifesto. iPushPull has benefited from such government support winning two InnovateUK Smart Grants supporting research and development in mobile security and advanced access control.
