  • Women in FinTech: Building a Portfolio Career Recorded: Dec 6 2018 47 mins
    Innovate Finance
    It is increasingly unlikely that people will stay in the same role in the same industry or company for the rest of their lives. With this has come the rise of flexible working and the proliferation of portfolio careers.

    This has been claimed to provide workers with autonomy, provide opportunities for creative output and greater ownership. But what are the realities of building a portfolio career? How does that work for women building a career in FinTech?

    Our panellists all work in FinTech currently but have different career paths and experiences along the way. Join us to hear their perspective and experiences in this webinar discussion.

  • Innovate Finance's Women in FinTech Webinar Series - Funding the Founders Recorded: Oct 16 2018 62 mins
    Innovate Finance
    Even though VC investment into UK FinTech has grown exponentially in recent years, reaching $1.8 billion in 2017, women still only raise a minute percentage of this. A recent study by Boston Consulting Group (BCG) and Mass Challenger, a network of startup accelerators, found that when women applied for investment, they received less funding compared to the average male founder, but made double the revenue.

    Our panel of CEOs in leading FinTech firms and investors will look at how women in FinTech are raising funding. Who are the funders? What are they looking for and what needs to change? Do women need to rely less on traditional modes of finance or are more dynamic options available?

    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.
