FinTech North to support MIDAS ‘Virtual FinTech Mission’
Joe Roche / 24th August 2020
Home to a thriving £5bn digital ecosystem, Manchester is officially the UK’s Top Digital Tech City (The Data City, 2020) and boasts the largest regional FinTech ecosystem in the UK (Whitecap Consulting, 2020).
Attracting the ambitious from around the world – including firms OakNorth, Adyen and Klarna – and with ambitions to create a critical mass of homegrown digital expertise, it is a region rich in talent. Driven by ideas and innovation, Manchester has been creating and shaping the future for more than 250 years. The city’s reputation for the radical has seen it take a leading position in established and emerging digital sectors, including FinTech, which has seen Manchester become one of the top five European cities for FinTechs to locate in (Savills, 2020).
MIDAS, Manchester’s inward investment promotion agency, has helped hundreds of FinTech and financial services firms successfully establish operations in the city. Now, in lieu of travel, MIDAS is collaborating with the Department for International Trade, FinTech North and Tech Nation to give you the opportunity to explore Manchester’s thriving FinTech Ecosystem – all from the comfort of your home.
We’re teaming up to offer you the chance to hear from successful brands driving the FinTech agenda in Manchester, as well as network with FinTech peers and professionals from across the city region and the world.
