Innovate Finance's Women in FinTech Webinar Series - Funding the Founders

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?

  • FinTechs Entering the US Market: What to Know Recorded: Apr 27 2020 64 mins
    Innovate Finance
    The United States is the largest financial services market in the world. For an international business, expanding operations to the U.S. can facilitate capital-raising efforts, provide access to one of the world’s deepest talent pools and create significant market opportunities.

    However, entering the U.S. market can be daunting for international businesses due in large part to its complex regulatory framework and knowing which type of investor to approach for each funding stage. This is especially true in the FinTech space, as a FinTech firm may be subject to oversight from a multitude of federal and state regulators, which can lead to regulatory uncertainty and significant compliance burdens. Hear from leading experts who will take you through the key elements of what you should know when considering entry into the U.S. market.
