As home to a number of established financial services companies including Experian, Capital One and Ikano Bank, the city of Nottingham has long been a focal point for the financial and professional services sector. Over recent years, the rapid proliferation and growth of new Fintech companies in the local area has further compounded Nottingham’s reputation as a financial services sector hub.
Blenheim Chalcot, the UK’s leading digital venture builder, has played an integral role in the development of Nottingham’s Fintech cluster, with its Accelerate Nottingham tech hub providing a physical base for many high growth potential Fintech businesses. With portfolio sales of over £300m and more than 3,000 employees, Blenheim Chalcot has a successful track record of over 40 companies across IT services and software platforms, financial services, education and media. We are therefore delighted to welcome Mark Onyett, Partner at Blenheim Chalcot, to share his insights at this guest ‘Fintech Focus’ presentation on Friday 12th October.
Mark studied Manufacturing Engineering at St. John’s College, Cambridge University. He was a founding member of Capital One’s UK executive team, before co-founding TDX Group, formerly a Blenheim Chalcot company before its sale to Experian in 2014. Sharing insights from his own career in Fintech, Mark will discuss what’s new in the sector, career opportunities in Fintech, some of the challenges the sector is facing and why Nottingham is right at the heart of much of this growth.
Please note, this event is only open to University of Nottingham students, staff and alumni.
Date: Friday 12th October
