Fintech Friends show sector strength

The north east fintech community were out in force at the end of August; supporting Dynamo and their mission to promote and grow the fintech cluster in the region.

Guests enjoyed refreshments at The Bridge Tavern, sponsored by Dynamo members Honcho Markets, and the event resulted in some very productive discussions, welcome introductions and future collaboration.  This is the first regional meet up of its type to focus entirely on the fintech ecosystem, and as such it attracted a wide range of disciplines including founders, developers, software architects, angel investors, funders, a blockchain maestro, payment specialists, academics, researchers and an entrepreneur getting ready to launch a more stable and transparent form of crypto currency.  Radial Path were on hand to interview some of the attendees for their blog, and Tasmin Lockwood asked some searching questions of xe.com, the global fintech futures operator who have recently established an office in the region.

Dawn Dunn, the Cluster Manager who organised the event said ‘we set out to make this a meet and greet social, what actually happened was a great meeting of minds.  SMEs mingled with large corporates, particularly Sage, DXC, Newcastle Strategic Solutions (part of Newcastle Building Society) and Barclays. Additionally there were a surprising number of fintech operators who had been working in the south east until recently – they were delighted to have an overview of the top talent and opportunity gathered in the room, with one proclaiming “I’ve met more people tonight than at a host of fintech events in London” – everyone vowed to be back for more.’

Dynamo are currently open to sponsorship offers for the next fintech meet up which is planned for the end of the year, if you would like to take advantage of this opportunity please get in touch with dawn.dunn@dynamonortheast.co.uk for further information.
