FINTECH Tours — intensive city experiences.

A two-day intensive experience in the City of London, the fintech capital of the World.

FINTECH Tours—insights into the future of finance, asset management, insurance and fintech innovation.

Why London?

London is poised to overtake New York and Silicon Valley in the next 24 months as the World’s fintech capital, as shown by the chart below.

In 2017 London was #1 for fintech deal activity with 39.3% of all deals done between the three locations, beating Silicon Valley in its second position with 37.1%.

This means that as far as having your startup seen and funded, London is a major—if not the major—city from which to focus your organization’s networking and growth objectives.

Innovation is no longer an option—it’s a necessity.

Many startups fail to receive the funding they deserve because they aren’t able to present their business in the best possible light to potential investors.

This isn’t just terrible news for startup owners, but also for investors and the rest of us (potentially profitable and world-changing ideas were never brought to fruition).

Introducing FINTECH Tours.

A FINTECH Tour is one of the most powerful ways to meet innovators creating the next wave of financial products and services.

Network with leading fintech entrepreneurs, financial services professionals, accelerators and investors globally.

Explore new business and revenue models, and apply them in your business to improve your competitive edge.

Learn from fintech thought leaders across WealthTech, InsurTech, RegTech, Blockchain, Crypto Finance and Enterprise Innovation.

Nurture your innovation culture and maximise your business success by making the right connections with like-minded people, organisations and investors.

Attend a FINTECH Tour and we will vouch for you.

On a FINTECH Tour we not only give you access to our hand-picked network of premier connections, but we also vouch for you and your business by making introductions and recommendations in person.

Gain access to our private network.

We’ve worked hard to find and build strong relationships with these organizations and individuals over a significant period of time, meaning you get to bypass that and jump straight into conversation with them. This will not only save you months of time and energy, but it will open up doors that would otherwise be closed.

Michael Brooke Paribas

“We were delighted to work in partnership with FINTECH Circle for the BNPP International Hackathon. This was a complex challenge which drew deeply upon their extensive ecosystem and expertise. The requirement was not only to assess and select multiple entrepreneurs across 2 intricate and multi-faceted customer journeys, but also to ensure a positive experience for our attendees and FinTech participants. The value that FINTECH Circle delivered to the whole process, their speed of execution, excellent communication and responsiveness was exemplary. The event was a major success and we look forward to working with FINTECH Circle for the long term.”
