  • Eric van der Kleij, Head of Level39
  • Jenny Tooth, CEO at UK Business Angel Association
  • Bindi Karia, Start-up Expert, former VP Silicon Valley Bank

 Key Themes: 

  • What is fuelling the FinTech sector’s growth? What are the opportunities for start-ups, established financial institutions & investors?
  • What does it take to become an angel investor, and what are some of the success stories, pitfalls, and lessons learnt?
Global investment in FinTech has tripled in the last year to $12billion, and projections for annual global investment in FinTech are expected to reach $46bn in 2020. London is looking to establish itself as the principal global hub for FinTech, but other cities such as Hong Kong are also emerging.We will also look at the fast growing angel investment scene, which has been instrumental in helping early stage start-ups take off. An estimated £850m per annum is invested by angels annually in the UK, which is 2.5 times the amount of venture capital invested in early stage start-ups.This event is kindly being supported by InvestHK, whose mission is to attract and retain foreign direct investment which is of strategic importance to the economic development of Hong Kong, and to provide advice to firms that wish to set up an office or expand their existing business in Hong Kong.There are a limited number of places sold on  a ‘First come, first served’ basis!
