Why Rise

FinTech Founders

Be surrounded by your own kind.

Everyone working from our offices is involved in FinTech. So you can grow, develop and learn from each other. In our spaces, you can focus on what matters – your business – without worrying about things like changing the coffee filter or setting up the WiFi.

And if you need to grow your business and get a few extra desks, or shrink it down for a little while, you can. Contact us for membership options to get started.

Barclays Client and Partner Network

For our Barclays Client and Partner network, there’s an opportunity to get involved with our Rise community to and help you discover new opportunities for growth.

Throughout the year, we hold FinTech events relevant to your sector, and provide you with the chance to network with Rise members and companies from our Accelerator programme.
