Ep. 185. Insights: Fintech for All

29min listen

In this episode Simon Taylor chairs a round table discussion on financial inclusion, based around Tech City UK's Fintech For All competition, and he's joined by the winner, event sponsors and event organisers.

Today we’re bringing you an insights show with a difference. A couple of months ago our 11:FS CEO David Brear was invited to be a judge of Tech City UK’s Fintech for All competition. This was a nationwide competition in 2017 to find fintech startups that make financial services work for everyone.

As well as some fantastic entrants and eventual winners, this event got us thinking about the wider implications of financial inclusion. Therefore we felt we really needed to do a podcast to delve into the issues raised.and what this competition really highlighted, and how best the problems of financial inclusion and serving the underbanked can be solved in the UK.

Joining us we had both the Tech City UK team behind the event and also an event sponsor and an event winner:

  • Laura Coffey - Head of Fintech at Tech City UK
  • Gregoire Michel - Senior Program Manager at Tech City UK
  • Miles Debrah - Evaluation Grant Manager at Money Advice Service
  • Virraj Jatania - CEO & Co-founder, Pockit

We hope you enjoy the show - spread the word, tell your friends and don't forget to leave us a review on iTunes.
