Hi Everyone,

We’re running this event in partnership with the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) to provide an easy access morning surgery for Startups. This is a pilot, but if it works well we’ll look into running it more regularly.

Early stage FinTech Entrepreneurs can be under-represented at the FCA as they don't have dedicated regulatory affairs personnel to manage their FCA relationship and the Founders rarely have the time themselves. This can place new companies at a disadvantage, and so this surgery is designed to provide an easy opportunity to gain access to key FCA personnel in a relaxed environment without charge.

Our aim is to select 12 Entrepreneurs from the NewFinance Membership and focus on specific topics that are common to all. The format is simply a morning drop-in session with informal roundtables, teas, coffees and biscuits. The information on the application forms will help us select the right FCA staff to invite to the surgery and where possible we will try to facilitate common themes that are most important at the time.

I hope this will become a regular and highly valuable event to our FinTech Entrepreneurs, let’s try it and see...

    Good session. Unfortunately no insurance person from the FCA there - maybe next time.....

    Very enjoyable and useful session - I agreed with another's comment that relevance to an individual delegate can depend on very specific areas of regulation and expertise, but I was able to learn a lot and make some useful connections.
