WEBINAR: Exploring Northern Ireland’s Fintech Diversity – Invest Northern Ireland

October 1, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

As more and more Australian and New Zealand tech companies seek to expand to the UK and Europe, Northern Ireland has emerged as the go-to location for fintech investments.

Did you know Belfast is now the world’s number one destination for fintech development investment projects? And is also the top city in Europe for new FDI software development projects?

Northern Ireland’s trade and investment agency Invest NI together with Stone & Chalk is pleased to invite you to an interactive after-work panel webinar. In this webinar, Stone & Chalk’s resident mentor David McLellan will explore the different components of Northern Ireland’s unique fintech eco-system, and incentives available for Australian and New Zealand technology companies seeking to expand.
