A new era for FinTech Start-Ups - Exciting times ahead!
Posted: Tuesday 10th January '2017
2016 will probably be
remembered for Brexit, or the fact that Donald Trump is to be the new president
of U.S.A. It shouldn't be. 2016 should be remembered as one of the defining
years for FinTech Start-Ups.
Last night I went to
the Startupbootcamp FinTech London 2016 Demo Day, showcasing 10 of the hottest
startups ready to shape the future of finance. These weren't just any old
companies, these were the final 10 out of hundreds that have gone through
rigorous stress-testing and interviews to determine the value of their product,
their USP, funding and route to market.
When markets face
uncertainty, the safe option would be to consolidate, defer to what you know
and stick with old habits. Not here. Here was a room buzzing with creativity,
passion and a drive to use technology to make things better.
I was amazed at the
level of innovation our technologists are able to come up with today, and I'm
excited to see how their promises to change the future of tomorrow, become a
defined by the people that work for them and I love helping start-ups identify
the smartest people out there.
