Finding the right kind of investors and partners doesn’t have to be elusive or frustrating.

If you’re reading this you’ve realized by now that getting in front of the right people and talking about your idea in a way that keeps them interested can be incredibly difficult.

The world is a vast space of good and bad opportunities with the best being scattered and hidden from plain view.

More often than not, an almost “perfect storm” of conditions is needed to put you in a position to successfully collaborate with investors, clients and partners.

This is why we created FINTECH Tours.

A FINTECH Tour is one of the most powerful ways for you to quickly grow your Fintech network today.

Meet like-minded people, organizations and investors, learn about their investment criteria and how to stand out from the crowd.

Network with other Fintech entrepreneurs.

Learn from European Fintech companies who have relocated to London to tap into the world’s greatest Fintech ecosystem.

Maximise the potential of your idea by making the right connections and educating yourself from the best people.

The FINTECH Tour is a two-day intensive experience in the City of London—the Fintech capital of the world—where we personally chauffeur you and a handful of others on a meet and greet with the very best Fintech accelerators, incubators, investors and entrepreneurs that we’ve worked hard to find and build strong relationships with over the years.

This will not only save you months of time and energy, but it will open up doors that would otherwise be closed through our private network and brand.

On a FINTECH Tour we not only give you access to our hand-picked network of premier connections, but we also vouch for you and your business by making introductions and recommendations in person.

“After attending the two day event, anyone that is considering a startup in FinTech or you are wanting to expand your Fintech business to Europe, you need to attend the London Fintech Tours. What you will gain in knowledge, resources and connections for your Fintech business will not be matched anywhere. London is truly the Fintech Hub of the world.”
