London, UK has proven to be fertile ground for the emergence and incubation of disruptive FinTech start-ups. The recent economic crisis and bad press that has engulfed the banking sector has led to a drop in consumer confidence and deterioration of trust in the old banking establishment giving rise to an unprecedented opportunity for FinTech companies.

Amoo Venture Capital Advisory and the British Virgin Islands London Office is offering an international stage upon which to showcase the most innovative and disruptive emerging technologies.

Attendees will include active venture capitalists, angel investors and industry professionals as well as a number of ambassadors to the U.K. The evening will be truly global, and will provide a unique platform for emerging technologies. Not only will it be a great chance for you to check out some of the best fintech startups in the market but it will also be an excellent opportunity for you to network.
