The Makers Live Podcast: The Future of FinTech!

What is the future of FinTech? Join us on October 1st to hear from a number of leading FinTech founders who will be joining us for a 45 minute discussion on the subject. We will also discuss:

  1. Where will FinTech’s raise future capital from?

  2. How will FinTech’s continue to find the best talent?

  3. How can regulators support FinTech companies?

FinTech companies have raised billions of dollars and we are super excited to have the following speakers joining us. The panel will be moderated by Ollie Forsyth host of The Makers Podcast.

Guest speakers:

Tandem: Ricky co-founded GSM Systems (a global mobile telephony network services provider) in 2003 and is a Director and Founder of Small World Financial Services Group (a global money transfer business with over £4bn of transfers) which is now Europe’s largest independent Money Transfer operator. He also Founder and Non-Executive Director of Azimo, a social digital payments platform that enables simple, fast and secure remittances to 198 countries globally.

Dozens: Aritra Chakravarty - founder of Dozens is creating a fundamentally new model for banking and a home for your money - all in one app.

Curve: Shachar is the founder of Curve - the card that allows you to store your cards in one place. Managing your money just got a lot easier. With Curve, you get real-time alerts that tell you how much you’ve spent (and in which currency). We also show you how you’re spending to help you budget. And if you use the wrong card to pay, you can Go Back in Time and change it. With Curve you’re in complete control. Brilliant.

Soldo: Soldo was founded by Carlo Gualandri – an entrepreneur with a track record of building successful companies in industries transformed by market shifts, technology and regulations. Soldo was born out of the vision of a multi-user expense account. One that saves time and money while delivering greater visibility and control over business expenses. We’re on a mission to make business spending smarter.

OakNorth: In 2006, Rishi Khosla and Joel Perlman, our founders, faced an uphill struggle while trying to secure working capital to support their rapidly growing business, Copal Amba (now part of Moody’s Corporation). Their business was in a good shape with a healthy cash flow, and strong projections for the future, yet none of the banks were willing to lend to them because they didn’t have any property to act as security. As Copal Amba kept growing, Rishi and Joel realised that there are millions of other businesses in the UK facing the same struggles in securing growth finance. The idea for OakNorth began to form. After scaling Copal Amba to almost 3,000 people and selling it to Moody’s Corporation in 2014, the two set out to launch a bank for entrepreneurs, by entrepreneurs. Today, the bank is one of the most active lenders in the UK having lent over £3bn with c.55,000 savings customers. Its loans have directly helped with the creation of 10,000 new homes and 13,000 new jobs in the UK, as well as adding several billion pounds to the economy.

We look forward to seeing you on October 1st!

Food & Drinks will be provided!
