COVID-19 – New update from FinTech Scotland 28/04

As we enter the 6th week of lockdown, FinTech Scotland CEO, Stephen Ingledew, is giving us a two minute update on examples of what's happening in the Scottish fintech cluster and beyond.

We've been delighted to see how Scottish fintechs have adapted to the situation and many are using their innovations to address the economic and social impact of COVID-19 on people, businesses and the economy including
Inbest, Castlight, Wallet Services, BePayd, DirectID, Amiqus, Sustainably, Modulr, Giftround, Float, Xpand Access, Soar are all rising to the challenge.

Nicola Anderson published a great blog highlighting some of the fintech innovation initiatives.

We've been working with colleagues from eight other European fintech hubs to draft a proposal to submit to the EU commission highlighting measures that could be taken at the European level to help the fintech sector through such difficult times and contribute to the overall effort with their innovative solutions.

In the video Stephen also gives a shout out to our friends at French fintech firm Worldline who organised a virtual running event to support the NHS front line teams.

We hope you and your families are safe and we'll be back soon for more updates. Please keep in touch in the meantime
