Rise: Five years of innovation

Wednesday 15 July, 2.00pm BST

Rise London

Everything starts with an idea. Ideas are the foundation of innovation. Ideas become innovations that change the very way the world of financial services works. 

As the start-up led FinTech boom took off, Rise opened its first site in Whitechapel, London, with a team of less than ten and one strong mission: to accelerate innovation and growth in the financial industry by connecting and supporting the FinTech ecosystem.

Five years on, on our fifth birthday, we'll look back at that journey, what we've collectively achieved - there's been so much - and what's still to come.
