Investment opportunity for fintechs with TechInvest 4

Aug 09, 2018

Apply before 23rd August for the chance to pitch to over 120 investors on 28th September

The Mayor of London, in association with UK Business Angels Association (UKBAA), will shortly be holding the fourth and final instalment of its TechInvest programme - and this time the focus is Fintech!

TechInvest is an innovative programme showcasing London’s leading tech talent across different themed sectors, to help them court top investors. The fintech showcase, taking place on 28th September, will see eight to ten entrepreneurs pitch their wares in London’s Living Room at City Hall. It’s a unique opportunity for businesses and projects to connect with others in their sector, and most importantly, secure funding to scale!

Applicants should be London-based businesses that are working to improve the delivery of traditional financial services. So, if you’re working on a financial innovation which will empower Londoners, make their lives easier, and improve access to financial services, then why not apply! You can be at any stage, from start-up to scaling, but must be actively seeking investment.

Previous Techinvest events have concentrated on Artificial Intelligence, Augmented and Virtual Reality, and Smart Cities. As well as the chance to win investment, at each event the winners receive bespoke, expert UKBAA coaching to help develop their pitch, along with one-to-one mentoring.

All chosen entrepreneurs will also gain masses of exposure, effectively getting a fantastic promotional opportunity for free! Not to mention being put in touch with some of the capital’s deepest pockets.

London is fast making a name for itself as a world leader in tech, and the Techinvest team are championing the groundswell of talent which exists in start-ups and SMEs across the city. Their aim is to harness some of that innovative power, to give London’s most talented tech entrepreneurs the chance to see their venture thrive.
