How can Scottish fintechs scale up to the next level

8th October 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Event Navigation

Join our expert industry panel for an evening of networking and discussion focused on the challenges facing young Fintechs seeking to scale up.

While Scotland’s Fintech sector is in a vibrant state, many young and emerging Fintechs face real challenges when it comes to moving beyond the start-up phase and growing to scale.

How can these firms achieve their full potential and in turn deliver lasting value to consumers and the economy as a whole?

Help shape the conversation as we discuss:

– Funding the scale-up phase and finding the right approach for your business;

– Working with legacy banks to identify customer needs and pain points and addressing them effectively and collaboratively;

– Finding the right people quickly to support your business growth needs;

– Identifying the best markets for your business;

– Offering a supportive ecosystem to encourage fintech entrepreneurs and innovative young businesses;

– Working together to turbo-charge growth across the whole fintech community
