Nexus, FinTech North and Leeds University Business School have joined forces for a morning of fintech discussion during Leeds Digital Festival.

Fintech is one of the fastest growing tech sectors. With a strength in Financial Services and numerous innovative technology businesses, Leeds is well positioned as an incubator location for fintech activity.

Join us to discuss how the University of Leeds and the wider region is championing fintech. This includes Nexus, a new innovation hub at the University, the launch of an exciting new MSc Financial Technology programme and research on promoting local funding opportunities.

Leeds Fintech Day will also feature a showcase of Leeds FinTechs due to be announced shortly.

With a wealth of academic and commercial experience on tap the session will be unmissable for those with an interest in current trends and a stake in the future of fintech across the City and the wider region.
