Top 8 UK FinTech’s to follow and why

Posted by Henrik P Löfgren on 2019-apr-02 10:22:25

Despite current political circumstances, The London FinTech scene is booming. The city, by many seen as the financial capital of the world, attracts tech-savvys, entrepreneurs and investors, and every day you hear about new ventures, that are disrupting the industry or at least attempting to. Navigating in this landscape can be challenging even though hubs such as Rise and Level 39 exist, which attract many new innovators. Competition is fierce and 99 of 100 FinTech's will probably never make it. But the few who actually are successful make a large impact on the industry, and drive it forward by enabling new, smart and value-adding solutions. There are certainly many exciting FinTech's and challengers out there, and I have listed 8 of them that have made a particularly strong impression on me. Do you agree with the list? What UK FinTech's would you add, and which ones do you see as a must to follow further on?

How long will organisations designed for the 20th century survive in the 21st?

Posted by Ragnar Agnell on 2019-mar-05 11:03:00

Many of today’s most fast-growing and innovative companies have chosen a different type of organisation structure and leadership style than the traditional hierarchical and top-down managed model. Is their success attributable only to their innovative products, services and business models or is it actually the other way around; that they are fast-moving and innovative because they are organised and led differently?

Fast-paced change requires new organisation models and leadership

Posted by Ragnar Agnell on 2018-dec-03 10:58:00

Among fast-growing companies, new organisation forms have emerged over the last decades, introducing empowered teams, self management and network based leadership. This has happened in the context of the ‘gig economy’ and a widespread desire amongst talents to work more independently. Many of these organisations and eco-systems of collaborating companies thrive and grow faster than traditional companies. So are new ways to lead and organise necessary for companies to keep up with the accelerating pace of change, and how is this achieved in practice?

Few have missed the buzz around Blockchain over the last few years. But now we are seeing that it is much more than buzz; the number of real use cases based on the technology is growing, and an increasing number of organisations, across a range of industries, understand how to utilise its benefits.

Posted by Alexander Danson on 2018-jun-28 10:30:00

Wednesday 20th June was an exciting day for Centigo in our journey to fulfil our vision of Sensible Growth – Everywhere, when we held our first external event in London at our offices at Kings Cross. It was a big day for two reasons. Firstly, symbolically, as by holding the event we are shouting at the top of our voices that we have entered the London market. Secondly, it provided yet more evidence that the British market is interested in what we have to offer. We were joined by 40 enthusiastic business profiles who had insightful questions, as well as feedback on Centigo’s unique approach.

Digitalisation, Brexit and trade barriers – a challenge or an opportunity?

Posted by Ragnar Agnell on 2018-apr-30 10:30:00

Megatrends and recent events have a huge impact on how international trade is developing. The globalisation in trade is ever increasing, as is also the introduction of regulations and security measures. A key question is how to reduce the risks whilst maintaining or improving the operational efficiency? Another is how to turn this into a competitive advantage and increased sales by controlling and knowing in detail what you trade across borders, end-to-end.
