The process starts with an open application – with successful short-listed applicants pitching directly 'Dragon's Den style' to our panel of senior CIOs and CTOs.

We then invite six finalists to join the programme which runs from January to March. This culminates in the 'Investor Day' when you could find yourself presenting to a room full of venture capitalists, business angels, senior financial services executives, and national and international media.

FinTech Innovation Lab London

The FinTech Investor Day will be on 26th March
