FinTech and Venture Capital Forum (CISI)

Last week I was invited to participate in a forum on FinTech and VC by the Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment (CISI). It was a good discussion and, from the feedback, was well received.

In addition to myself, the other panel members (all VCs) were:
Dan Chaplin, Associate, Dawn Capital (B2B FinTech and enterprise software)
Jack Clarke, Market Adviser Financial Services and Fintech, Enterprise Ireland
Barnaby Terry, Managing Partner, Sussex Place Ventures
Mark Whitcroft, Founding Partner, Illuminate Financial Management (focused exclusively on FinTech).

The panel was chaired by Michael Imeson, Senior Content Editor FT Live and Contributing Editor, The Banker.

I took the opportunity to mention the new MSc degree in Finance and Finance Technology (FinTech) that is now being provided by the ICMA Centre at Henley Business School where I teach. My module on Private Equity & Venture Capital is an elective on this new FinTech MSc. For more details see:
