Veriday is proud to be one of the 13 Canadian companies participating in The Canadian, UK FinTech Mission Think Tank Team Challenges mission led by the Department for International Trade (DIT). The DIT will be leading the 5 day mission, accompanied by CIBC bank, to the UK from December 4th to 8th. The mission, which is supported by British Airways, will give organizations the opportunity to network with leading fintech peers during the “FinTech Connect Live” conference and the “European Digital Banking Summit” in London.
The mission’s goal is to support companies’ growth plans for the UK, introduce them to the world’s leading financial centre and provide valuable insight into the market from industry experts and mentors.
This event will take the form of an open roundtable discussion; each Think Tank Team Challenge will explore a key area of the UK banking & FinTech landscape, presented to each team as a challenge.
The other 12 participating companies, from British Columbia and Ontario include: Blockchain Technology Limited, CIBC, Control, Grow Financial, Horizn, Kooltra, Lendified, OutsideIQ, Q4 Inc, RentMoola, Sensibill, and Zafin.
