How we support the Scottish fintech community

Fintech Scotland has been established to secure Scotland’s place as a top five global fintech centre. To succeed we bring together entrepreneurs, the established financial sector, the public sector, accelerators, investors, consumer groups, technology and service firms, universities and skills agencies.

Connecting

We develop and enable collaborative innovation across the fintech ecosystem by facilitating and encouraging connections.

We encourage relationships between large established financial services institutions and fintech firms, as well as facilitating the connections with the universities, technology and services providers, public body agencies and regulators such as the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).

Enabling

We position ourselves as a strategic enabler.

We’ve partnered with global organisations that have a strong base here in Scotland in order to offer a broad range of support options.

Our strategic partners are IBM, Pinsent Masons, Prudential, Dentsu Aegis Network, Equifax, Sopra Steria and Deloitte. We work very closely with Scottish Enterprise and the University of Edinburgh to help fintechs achieve growth.

Fuelling Innovation

We have a community of Scottish fintechs firms and leaders which meets on a regular basis for business or more social occasions.

We can offer support at every stage. We work with commercialisation experts Vivolution to help explore funding options and identify the most appropriate spaces for innovation and collaboration across Scotland.

Preparing for the future

We work closely with universities across Scotland to develop tailored fintech programmes.

We’re here to support the development of skills and talents amongst students and people who are looking to reskill or upskill to face an ever-changing job market.

We also work with companies such as CodeClan and the Datalab on more specific skill requirements.

Being visible

Our ambition is to be one of the top 5 fintech hubs in the world

Showcasing our fintech community, the success stories and all the great things that make the Scottish fintech ecosystem unique is part of our mission.

Through increased visibility we’re looking at attracting even more international capital to fuel the fintech sector.

Being global

We’re working with our partners at Scottish Development International to connect with other fintech hubs and organisations around the world.

These connections will not only help to extend the reach of Scottish fintechs looking to target new markets but also increase the probability of international fintechs joining us in Scotland.
