Eight Scottish firms travelled to Money 20/20 – the leading European fintech conference – in Amsterdam this week.

Supported by Scottish Development International and FinTech Scotland, the companies took part in the event to raise their profile among international buyers and investors.

Money20/20 is the largest fintech event in Europe bringing together over 7,500 attendees from over 2,300 companies coming from over 90 countries.

The event, from Tuesday to Thursday, featured global leaders, new challengers, tech giants and the fastest-growing start-ups in the sector.

The Scottish consortium was part of a UK-wide representation, connecting fintech SMEs, clients and investors from across Europe.

The coming together of the UK delegation continues to show the opportunity fintech represents for the UK economy as part of the UK ‘Fintech National Network’.

FinTech Scotland and SDI featured alongside other fintech hubs including FinTech Wales, FinTech North and Innovate Finance.

The eight Scottish fintech firms selected to showcase their innovative technologies at Money20/20 were Zumo, DirectID, Autorek, Modulr, BR-DGE, Level-E Research, Waracle and Teradata. They represent some of the best of what Scotland’s thriving fintech cluster has to offer and will showcase their cutting-edge solutions to a global audience.

The firms gave practical demonstrations of their innovative solutions to investors and potential partners from across Europe at a spotlight event organised on the UK pavilion. 

Nicola Anderson, CEO at FinTech Scotland, said: “We are delighted to see such a strong delegation of Scottish fintechs attending Money20/20. This is a fantastic opportunity for these companies to showcase their innovative solutions.”

“As FinTech innovation across the UK and Scotland continues to thrive, we can expect to see more exciting developments from this innovative sector in the years to come. International growth remains a strategic priority for fintech SMEs and we’re focused on partnering with SDI to deepen connections with priority markets.”
