Conference 2024

Yoko Ono Lennon Centre, University of Liverpool


Introducing FinTech North’s Liverpool Conference, hosted in partnership with headline sponsors Lenvi and brand sponsors, Mastercard, Vilja Solutions, University of Liverpool and Growth Platform.

Earlier this year, the recent Whitecap Consulting analysis of the Liverpool City Region FinTech ecosystem found clear momentum behind a dynamic and growing FinTech sector in Liverpool. In an ecosystem most considered to be fledgling, the team at Whitecap Consulting found anything but – FinTech in Liverpool generates over £200m GVA, with over 40 FinTech companies calling the city region their home.  

Home to a strong digital and creative economy, the time is right to dedicate more FinTech networking in the city. Enter FinTech North. We return to Liverpool with a full-day conference for the first time since 2019. On the back of a successful FinTech x Gamification event in 2022, we are delighted to be back on Merseyside for a celebration of all things excellent in the Liverpool ecosystem.  

We will bring together FinTech leaders and entrepreneurs from across the North and further afield, along with a cross-section of the Northern FinTech community, to hear about regional and national developments in our sector, with keynote presentations, panel discussions and our trademark FinTech showcase.  

We will provide a platform for people to talk about FinTech businesses and ideas, put the call-out for increased collaboration and partnerships, and illuminate pathways to funding and investment. We will continue our work as a conduit between the regional, the national and the international.  

Our conference will explore themes of:  

– Skills and Talent retention – why great careers in FinTech and Tech can be found on our doorstep 

– Funding and investment – what avenues are available to Northern Founders trying to raise funds

– Regional Innovation – exploring the Liverpool ecosystem and profiling our start-ups and scale-ups

– Established FinTech and FS – what are the region’s brightest and best brands working onEquality diversity and bias – female entrepreneurship and funding – financial inclusion -accessibility 

The Liverpool Conference will take place on the 28th of March 2024 at the University of Liverpool’s new Yoko Ono Lennon Centre.

Thank you also to event partners and name badge sponsors DTM Legal.
