As the 2024 FinTech North Liverpool Conference marked its return, it delved into pivotal themes ranging from talent retention and funding avenues to regional innovation and inclusivity in the financial sector. Partnering with this landmark event DTM Legal, not only acted as a proud sponsor but also contributed to a panel discussion.

What is the FinTech North Conference?

FinTech North was established in 2016 with the goal of growing the FinTech ecosystem within our region. Their focus is on community building, supporting trade and improving skills through events and related activities. Pinnacle to FinTech North’s events are their conferences which provides an agenda tailored to the regions FinTech ecosystem’s specific needs.

The 2024 FinTech North Liverpool Conference was the first time the city has hosted the event since 2019 and explored the following key themes:

  • Skills and Talent retention – why great careers in FinTech and Tech can be found on our doorstep
  • Funding and investment – what avenues are available to Northern Founders trying to raise funds
  • Regional Innovation – exploring the Liverpool ecosystem and profiling our start-ups and scale-ups
  • Established FinTech and Financial Services – what are the region’s brightest and best brands working on equality, diversity and bias – female entrepreneurship and funding – financial inclusion – accessibility

The event concluded with a showcase of several of the regions FinTech’s.
