Despite the gruelling impact of the Covid pandemic on the economy, the FinTech sector appears to be more buoyant than most. Since the start of the year membership of FinTech Scotland has risen by 10 per cent, as entrepreneurs appear confident to invest in this growth market.
But does Scotland have the talent pool to effectively staff these emerging new businesses, where do start-ups find their funding, how can existing players access future finance for growth and how will they get their products to market in an ever-changing world?
Hosted by experienced business journalist David Lee, and powered by JPIMedia Events and the Scotsman, along with Ernst & Young, Burness Paull and Strathclyde Business School, the free Scotland’s FinTech Future webinar on April 22 promises to be a fascinating insight in the exciting years ahead for existing and new Fintech businesses in Scotland.
Speakers include Oli Henderson, Associate Partner, Financial Services – Transactions and Strategy, EY; Caroline Stevenson, Head of Financial Services Regulatory Team, Burness Paull; Daniel Broby, Director, Centre for Financial Regulation and Innovation, Strathclyde University; Nicola Anderson, CEO, FinTech Scotland; Nicki Bisgaard, CEO, EedenBull and Chairman PayTech Group.
The virtual webinar takes place on Thursday, April 22, from 2 – 3.30pm.
