SPOTLIGHT ON FINTECH

  • Mansion House, Walbrook, London EC4N 8BH United Kingdom (map)

Innovate Finance invites you to join us at this event, hosted by the Lord Mayor of London as part of UK FinTech Week 2019, to introduce senior school students to the world of financial technology

What is FinTech?

“FinTech” is used to describe the growing trend to use software, technology and the internet to create and deliver financial services. This could be checking your bank balance on an app on your phone, paying for your lunch through contactless with your smartwatch, or crowdfunding a project or new business through an online platform.

The FinTech for Schools campaign is designed to encourage young people to understand the increasing importance of digital skills in the workplace. It explores how young people will increasingly use FinTech across their personal lives and how they can work in the sector as part of their professional lives.

Inspiring students from an early age, by providing them with a wide variety of role models from diverse backgrounds and skill sets, is a vital first step in creating a new model to deliver real change in terms of diversity in the workplace and to encourage all students to grasp the wide opportunities available to them in this field.
