Phil Vidler, CEO of FinTech Alliance, commented: “I’m delighted to announce the FinTechs that have been nominated to present on our Pitch Day. The judges have had their work cut out to sift through all the submitted pitch decks and choose which will present in front of our committed group of Angels, VCs, CVCs and PE investors. It’s been great to see the Founders working hard putting what they’ve learned at our masterclasses into practice, and clearly all this has paid off for our final 20. 

“I hope they will benefit from the experience of so many investors and gain valuable feedback, connections and ultimately investment. I would like to thank all the companies that have supported us so far – Mountside Ventures, Anthemis, Albion VC, Athena Ventures, PwC, QED, White & Case, Level39 and Rise created by Barclays to name a few – as well as the FinTech Alliance team for putting together a successful series. This is not the end – we hope to continue supporting FinTechs through their fundraising journey and beyond.”
