I am excited to be promoting London tech at Money 2020. I have spent my career in and around entrepreneurs, understanding how they think, what they need and how to best enable them to create genuine innovation and change.

As an entrepreneur myself, I have become adept at creating the interface that can enable massive corporate entities to have meaningful commercial relationships with these entrepreneur-led innovative companies. From working with Google to help create their engagement model, Campus, to working with Barclays for the last 5 years to co-create Rise, one of the worlds leading fintech innovation projects.

I have taken this experience and applied it now to a crucial evolution, that of financial institutions, with Blackbox Inc. We have looked at the key pain points faced by banks and innovators and developed the solution.

Today I am focused on enabling the next generation of financial institution through the collaborative evolution of the current system.

We know that change is coming, there is an avalanche of innovation and rather than sweep away the current institutions we want to be here to make sure that these two fundamental groups, the Institutions and the Innovators, make the most out of their mutual potential. Together they can deliver genuine change which will evolve this key industry sector. We not only believe that this is possible but know we have the tools to get this job done.
