TeleData Sponsors Manchester Digital Fintech Forum

FinTech in Manchester Meetup use (2)

We're pleased to announce our sponsorship of the Manchester Digital FinTech Forum.

Taking place on Thursday 12th September, this quarterly senior-level event will see Manchester Digital share industry research and mapping work, while a roundtable discussion will look at the barriers and opportunities that need to be tackled collectively, to drive the future success of the FinTech industry in Manchester.

Areas for discussion include;

- Cost competitiveness compared to other regions
- The availability of business capital
- Recognition of Manchester as a world-leading financial centre
- A reputation as a city of innovation within tech
- Access to highly-skilled talent and research

The alignment of Manchester’s two largest industries – financial services and tech and digital – has brought about a thriving sector that’s developing strength and expertise in sectors such as data analytics, payments, cyber-security, platforms and software, and we're looking forward to being involved in this exciting industry of digital transformation.
