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?

Unprecedented Blockchain Investment Fuels Business Model Innovation

Posted by Alexander Danson on 2018-aug-22 10:20:00

Blockchain changes the digital playing field when it comes to business models. Companies are building applications which can be governed in a decentralised way beyond the control of a single person, company or country. They are also utilising new methods of monetisation outside of the fiat system, distributing value and power.
