Scotland’s Fintech Festival - 50+ Events throughout September

FinTech Scotland has confirmed the programme for the third Scotland Fintech Festival being held online from 7th September to 5th October. 

The festival will see a diverse range of fifty plus events throughout the month sharing fintech developments in Scotland and from around the world.

The festival will build on the successful events from the last two years which has seen it grow in popularity welcoming thousands of people

The 2020 edition will be different with events being held online and the virtual nature of this year’s festival will provide the opportunity to reach an even broader global audience.

The large number of events range from very focussed one-hour sessions to full day generalist digital conferences involving a diverse set of contributions from participants.

FinTech Scotland has worked in close collaboration with the teams at Scottish Development International and Visit Scotland to showcase the very best in innovation with a strong global emphasis.

The fintech cluster in Scotland is maintaining the momentum despite the current economic uncertainty. In many respects, the challenges of the pandemic have driven an accelerated adoption of fintech innovation, very much reflecting the creativity and adaptability of fintech entrepreneurs and SMEs.

This year’s festival will offer plenty of occasions for the innovative firms in the community to share their propositions as well as the collaborative and inclusive approach to reinventing the financial world and more.

Economy Secretary Fiona Hyslop said: “I’m pleased to be supporting the FinTech Festival, an event which will demonstrate yet again the collaborative and innovative approach of the sector.

“We want the tech sector to play a key role in our economic recovery, and this festival will be a chance to discuss how FinTech can lead the way in supporting growth and creating jobs.”

Stephen Ingledew, Chief Executive at FinTech Scotland said: “More than ever before this year, we have appreciated the valuable engagement and collaboration of our strategic partners and friends in hosting events on such a broad range of themes. From fintech firms , citizen groups, the regulator, student associations, universities, financial firms, global enterprises, government bodies and many others all reflecting the inclusive nature of Scotland’s fintech cluster.”
