Our June Seminar on Financial Innovation will focus on early stage FinTech ideas and concepts and will follow with a repeat of our new and very successful panel session.
There will of course be the usual networking opportunities, and a buffet and refreshments are included at the start for your convenience as many of you will be coming straight from work.
We will also video the session for those of you who are unable to attend. You may click here to watch videos from our previous seminars. (http://www.meetup.com/newfinance/about/)
