Meet three inspirational fintechs on our stand 63

We're delighted to be taking three inspirational fintech firms as part of our delegation from Scotland. All three will tell you about Scotland's thriving fintech scene and how they have enjoyed considerable success from growing their operations here. Our guests will include:

Encompass - discover how this Australian firm is thriving in Scotland, helped by a £1.8 million grant from the Scottish Investment Bank, the investment arm of Scottish Enterprise.

The ID Co (formerly miiCard) - find out how it has grown in Edinburgh in just six years, creating “online trust in over 32 countries” to an audience of over 500 million consumers.

aio* (previously Levima) - another success story from Scotland – how does this firm “remove the pain” from employee expenses and petty cash management? Learn how aio* drives a customer centric strategy through product, service and channel design, harnessing the power of new technologies.
