Closing the FinTech gender gap remains a priority for Innovate Finance. We want to ensure female leaders play a vital role in creating better financial services for our communities. Although we have a lot of work to do to support more female FinTech founders and CEOs we should not overlook the contributions that women already play in our ecosystem.

Together they are driving FinTech forward and helping to create one of world’s most successful business sectors.
Join us as we speak to some of these women on International Women's Day 2018.
