Thanks again to our Expert Panelists:

· Chris Hill, Partner at Deloitte Legal

The Panel, discussed topics as varied as the Challenging Fintech landscape – as it becomes more complex & startup founders have to deal with many competing priorities.

What (legal) tasks should be at the Top of a CEOs “to do list” prior to their first fund-raise (and afterwards).  Hint…. Regulations came up a lot.

Albert Soleiman who just launched CMC Invest – shared his lessons with other Intrapreneurs and Fintech entrepreneurs in attendance – as did Ekko founder Oli Cook who was also sharing his growth journey thus far.  Oli also explained that ESG is not just a “Sales” grimmick, and the panel made predictions for 2023 and what their priorities & focus areas were going to be for the next few years.

We also discussed the opportunities and risks data-rich fintech companies need to be aware of…
Answer: GDPR, Legal compliance & getting sued.

We heard the Top Legal tips to raise funds in our current environment… and finally the audience also shared their own perspectives of EIS & SEIS pitfalls and challenges in a lively open conversation.
