  • Connecting Cork supports LendIt Fintech Europe 2018

    Written by:

    The financial services sector is going through a period of significant change, not least due to the disruptive technologies that are changing the way the sector will operate in the future. The growing ‘fintech’ sector is giving rise to technologies that are improving efficiencies and addressing issues such as security and fraud, and the more information that is available to Financial Services (FS) companies in relation to these issues, the better able they will be to prepare themselves for future changes.

    Over the last 18 months the ‘Connecting Cork’ team has been engaged in a dedicated programme of activities focused on the Financial Services sector. Collaborating and networking with industry experts at international conferences and events is an important means of highlighting the growth of Cork’s FS sector and identifying opportunities for future business collaboration.

    We are delighted to be working with LendIt Fintech Europe to bring our financial services businesses an opportunity for exclusive networking, learning and business development opportunities. LendIt Fintech Europe 2018, takes place on 19-20 November at the Business Design Centre in London, where more than 1,200 fintech attendees from 50 countries will be in attendance.
