Future Fin-Tech Unicorns: England’s Next Best 11

This is an edited version of an article on Medium by Craig Ryder

As part of London Fin-Tech Week, the outstanding Future Fin-Tech Unicorns event presented flash pitches of eleven fin-tech startups who have a genuine hope of hitting that $1 billion mark in the near future.

It’s unclear whether inviting eleven pitchers was a direct reaction to the news that amongst the USA’s glut of startup unicorns, eleven are in the fin-tech space. The Future Fin-Tech Unicorns were, however, up against a world cup semi final, but these eminent entrepreneurs easily outplayed France and Belgium’s combined eleven.

Thank Gareth they didn’t organise it for Wednesday, eh?

In no particular order then, here’s a rundown of the Future Fin-tech Unicorns pitches and who to keep an on eye in the next few months and years.


For anyone disenfranchised with the global banking system — and let’s face it, who isn’t since the crash of 2008 — GLINT is seriously exciting. Via their app users can buy gold and then pay for goods and services using the GLINT Mastercard, thereby employing a form of capital that does not suffer the same depreciation as traditional currency. Cofounder and CEO, Jason Cozens said “The policies of central banks erode our money. But gold can’t be corrupted.”

It’s especially great to see so many startups with a social inclusion message and supporting the underserved in society. More of that, please.

Final thanks to We Are Fin-Tech for hosting an exceptionally good event. More of them, too, please!
