A Fintech Hotspot
The tech sector in Wales is worth an estimated £8.2bn and it continues to grow, with almost 44,000 people actively employed within the Digital Economy.
Our thriving tech ecosystem with its growing supply chain, combined with our entrepreneurial universities, provides a firm foundation for fintech to thrive. A vibrant innovation community allows start-ups, investors and large corporations to meet and share ideas.
The growth of the financial and professional sector in Cardiff has led to a thriving Fintech cluster, supported by the region’s incubator and co-working spaces that provide flexible, quality accommodation.
The most promising fintech companies can apply to accelerator programmes, such as NatWest’s Entrepreneurial spark and Barclay’s Eagle Lab, which is tailored to suit Cardiff’s strengths in high tech digital and Internet of Things (IoT) innovation.
There are many reasons why doing business in Wales gives you a distinct advantage – from skills to strategic partnerships, and a tailored approach to financial support. We provide a personal response to business with clear lines of communication with Government. And the links between business and academic institutions grow stronger every year.
