About FinTech Wales
FinTech Wales launched in April 2019 with the initial direction provided by Richard Theo, the HM Treasury’s FinTech Envoy for Wales. Richard is a successful entrepreneur who has founded two leading FinTech businesses in Wales.
The idea behind FinTech Wales is to provide an independent voice for the FinTech industry, both within Wales and beyond, which will help to champion and maximise the potential for all businesses in this sector.
As well as nurturing and supporting those businesses already in Wales, it aims to develop an ecosystem that will help new FinTech companies start-up or scale-up. Ultimately, the goal is to make Wales a leading pillar in the global FinTech community.
The FinTech Wales advisory panel is made up of a group of entrepreneurs, representatives from small, medium and large enterprises as well as tech suppliers, universities, schools and the public sector.
