Invest Liverpool are working with FinTech North who, since their inception in 2016, have hosted 27 events across the North of England, attracting in excess of 2,000 delegates from over 500 different companies, as well as speakers drawn across 15 different countries. In 2018, speakers included the Financial Conduct Authority, Innovate Finance, Northern Powerhouse Partnership, First Direct, CYBG, Bupa, Barclays, North Invest, Squire Patton Boggs, as well as universities, investors and multiple regional, national and international FinTech innovators. Invest Liverpool are keen to encourage interaction with Legal firms based here in the city region.
The visit this year will take place on the 12 February 2019, with the 24 FinTech companies taking part in a morning event at The Titanic Hotel. As part of this event, there is a two-way pitching session whereby local companies will be able to pitch their ideas and opportunities for potential collaboration, highlighting the solutions or technologies they are looking to acquire (it’s not just Financial, as other Professional and Business Services technologies will feature too). The travelling FinTechs (see detailed list of attendees here) will have expertise in:
- Data & Analytics
- Artificial Intelligence
- Data Security
- Authentication / KYC
- Savings / Investments
- Risk Management
- Capital Management
We believe that this will be an unmissable event for companies looking to develop relationships, ideas and knowledge of Tech, with plenty of time for discussion and networking. This event looks to build upon some of the collaboration and research already taking place between technologists and Legal firms, notably some of the work coming out of the University of Liverpool.
Please do let me know if this of interest to you – it would be great to have some legal businesses pitch on the day!
