COVID-19 Updates

Keeping the Rise community up to date

In light of the uncertainty surrounding the outbreak of COVID-19, we want to reassure you that our Rise team continues to serve and support everyone in our community. Our number one priority is the safety and wellbeing of each member. We trust that at this time, you and your families are safe and well wherever you are. In the next few days and weeks, our team will be working hard, digitising and increasing virtual access to our services. We are collaborating with our partners Barclays Eagle Labs in the UK, to provide ongoing information, support, mentorship and learning that’s relevant to our FinTech community during these unprecedented times. We’ll make all of this available on our events page.

Keep in touch

We feel it’s more important than ever to stay connected during this time, so if you have thoughts or suggestions on how we can help you, your team and the ecosystem, do let us know by contacting us.

From a corporate-wide perspective, Barclay's response to COVID-19 is available on the Barclays website.

Keep well, and let’s look out for each other.
