Land and expand your fintech business in the US.
In 2020 the pandemic made fintech solutions essential for business survival, at a time when US consumers had to have new transactional solutions to open their wallets.
A National Retail Federation (NRF) survey found that 19% of US consumers made their first contactless payment in May, with 57% predicted to continue to use contactless payments in 2021 and beyond.
The opportunities for UK fintech companies to land and expand in the US are huge, but in a complex, litigious and competitive commercial and regulatory landscape – how can this be done to maximise opportunity and mitigate risk?
Join us on 21st or 22nd April at one of our interactive GTM workshops, where we will highlight some great go-to-market opportunities – especially with the Arizona Commercial Fintech Sandbox. Where ambitious UK fintech companies can connect with a qualified pool of US National and Regional financial institutions, and subject to stated success criteria – test and develop their solutions – in-market.
These 1-2-1 workshops offer a unique format of FREE consultations with Economic Development Organisations and mission-critical in-country financial service providers, covering topics such as legal, accounting, operational, HR & investment/finance, and invaluable business development connections that will help ensure the success of your US venture.
Get bespoke advice and guidance from regional Economic Development Organisations and mission-critical in-country financial service providers.
