Hi, I'm pleased to announce our September meetup at the Bar Music Hall in Shoreditch on the 26th September
The theme will be "Market Needs", let's start the discussion about market structure and market needs. What are the opportunites out there that a FinTech Entrepreneur can address with the latest Web 2.0 technologies? Where is the pain ?
Ian McKenna, Director, the Finance & Technology Research Centre
Ian heads up the FTRC (www.ftrc.co.uk), a specialist consultancy which benchmarks technology for financial product manufacturers, advisers, distributors and consumers. Ian knows the retail distribution space really well and will highlight market areas that may present opportunities for FinTech Entrepreneurs.
Gary Nash, Financial Adviser, Lighthouse Financial Advice
Gary is a practising Independent Financial Adviser at Lighthouse Financial Advice (www.lighthousefinancialadvice.co.uk)and will highlight the areas of the advice process that are legacy and inefficient and that would likely benefit from new technology.
Conrad Ford, Director, Funding Options
Conrad will discuss the structural barriers to choice and availability in small business lending, which he is trying to tackle with his new venture FundingOptions (www.fundingoptions.com ). Prior to FundingOptions, Conrad worked in a number of areas of banking, including four years in the group strategy department of Barclays.
6pm - start (note the Bar Music Hall has a Burger Deal on Mondays)
7pm - presentations
8pm - close and mingling in the bar
