Who is the Investor Forum for?
We are looking to gather investors interested in or actively supporting startups and scaleups in the Financial Services and FinTech space. We use a broad definition when considering investors, but predominantly we welcome applications to attend from:

VENTURE CAPITALISTS: Partner level in a fund that has invested in at least 3 startups in the last 18 months.
CORPORATE VENTURE CAPITALISTS: Senior decision-makers in the investment arm of a corporation that can demonstrate a clear mandate to invest in startups.
However, this list is not exhaustive and applications from other active investors will also be considered.
