Event description
On 31st January 2020, we will be hosting an Investment Forum in partnership with FinTech North supporters NorthInvest.

About this Event

We will discuss the challenges faced by Fintech startups in mitigating risk in their business models to appeal to investors (eg, developing APIs or third party services that can link into open banking), how to leverage local angel investors to bolster credibility among institutional investors, and the need for a clear roadmap to funding. We will also reflect on the state of the Fintech ecosystem within Leeds City Region and showcase the sector.

Joining the event will be guest speakers from investors and FinTech specialists, to startups who have successfully raised capital through investor networks and scaled to build innovative financial technologies.

Following our guest speakers, we invite 4 FinTech startups to participate in a lightning live pitch session to our audience to connect them directly with potential investors, clients and customers – and help them on their fundraising journey.

This event will be hosted in Leeds at aql, and is in partnership with North Invest.
