In this special edition of Spotlight, 11:FS CEO David M. Brear is joined by Ezechi Britton MBE, CEO of CFIT - The Centre for Finance, Innovation, and Technology.
CFIT was conceived based on a recommendation from the Khalifa review of UK fintech. Its purpose is to enable the UK to better capitalise on the opportunities that the growth of fintech can offer across England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland. The mission is clear: establish the UK as the ultimate global hub for fintech startups.
To uncover more about CFIT, we thought it would be best to speak to the individual responsible for its success. So, we extended an invitation to CEO Ezechi Britton MBE to join us at 11:FS HQ, in order to gain insights into what CFIT represents, its target audience, and its objectives.
Ezechi has a fascinating background taking him from investment banking, to founding a company, to being a VC - prompting a deep dive into his professional journey so far. Additionally, the conversation explores what drew him to this role, his aspirations for CFIT, and his outlook on the industry's future.
