Joe Roche / 24th March 2020
FinTech North will continue to support the northern FinTech community during the Covid-19 pandemic. We have assembled some useful links to business support and resources.
We will be keeping this page updated as the situation develops. Check out what support is available below:
FinTech Industry Support:
- Innovate Finance FinTech Survey – https://www.innovatefinance.com/uncategorised/how-will-covid-19-impact-your-business/. Our FinTech National Network partners Innovate Finance want to understand how COVID-19 will impact your business so that they can use concrete examples in discussions with government and other key stakeholders. We would be grateful if you could please spend a few moments to identify the areas of your business that are likely to be impacted, and where you would seek further guidance or advice.
