Tech Nation announces 2019 FinTech cohort
The 23 FinTech scale-ups joining Tech Nation’s second annual growth programme have been announced by the organisation.
Over six months, Tech Nation said it will work with the newly announce cohorts to grow and scale their businesses.
The firms were selected from over 100 applicants with the help of judging panel which included Eileen Burbidge, Partner at Passion Capital & Chair of Tech Nation; Anne Boden, CEO of Starling Bank; and Richard Theo, CEO of Wealthify and Fintech Envoy for Wales.
Mike Jackson, Entrepreneur Success Director at Tech Nation said: “Last year’s Tech Nation Fintech growth programme had tremendous success in connecting and creating opportunities for the most promising FinTech companies in the UK, and we are hugely excited to replicate this again in 2019.
“The companies in this year’s cohort have demonstrated significant promise as future FinTech leaders, and with the global FinTech market expected to be worth nearly £250bn by 2023, they will play a vital role in supporting the UK to remain at the head of the global pack.”
Tech Nation said the companies selected provide both B2B and B2C products and services, most predominantly SME finance, payments, capital markets, retail investing, and consumer credit and lending.
