Shortly after the inception of The Fintech Power 50, we started to work closely with Rise London. They are one of our official inaugural top sponsors for the 2019 edition of our fintech programme. As part of our collaboration, they provided us with some office space in the vibrant Rise London building, at the heart of trendy Shoreditch. We are always keen to support their digital activities and engaging events.
