Great tech talent, an excellent regulatory environment and a world-class city has turned London into the fintech capital of the world. And there’s a boom on. UK fintech firms secured $5.4 billion of the $49.7 billion of global investment in financial tech between 2010 and 2015, compared with the total $4.4 billion raised across the rest of Europe, according to research from Fintech Week London. Transferwise, Currency Cloud and Seedrs are among the stars of the scene.
So it makes sense for TechCrunch to allocate a special fintech space at TechCrunch’s upcoming Disrupt London, 5-6 December.
We will host a startup pavilion for Fintech companies. Because there are lots of very early stage startups in Fintech, we are offering five companies in each category the chance to exhibit free of charge.
Here’s what exhibitors in the Disrupt London special pavilion for Fintech can expect:
- Two individual Disrupt tickets per company for all three days of Disrupt London
- Exhibition table one day in the pavilion on Monday, December 5
- Participation in Crunchmatch, TechCrunch’s program to match entrepreneurs with investors during Disrupt.
Here’s how startups can apply:
Rules: Any early stage company in the Fintech space may apply.
Deadline: All applications must be completed by October 14. Winners will be notified by October 19.
For potential sponsors out there, yes, the pavilions are available for sponsorship. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
