Zvilo, the credit-led challenger bank for the Balkans and emerging markets, has been accepted to the Fintech 5.0 growth program facilitated by Tech Nation.
Tech Nation is the UK’s leading network for ambitious tech entrepreneurs, and the program itself is delivered as part of HM Treasury's Fintech Sector Strategy to maintain the UK’s place as a world leader in the sector.
Now in its fifth year, the six-month program aims to help some of the most exciting and promising UK fintech companies accelerate their growth and scale at speed both in the UK and abroad.
Mohamad Dabbas, Chief of Staff and Head of Investor Relations, stated: “We are incredibly excited to have been accepted as part of this program as it will support our ambition to scale and our passionate goal to make affordable financial products accessible to all.”
“The bespoke program is specifically designed to connect and create opportunities for the founders through a series of in-depth insight sessions, networking events with key stakeholders and more. This central element of the Fintech 5.0 Program will give Zvilo access to a wider network of 30 fintech companies spanning across more than 10 subsectors and, as a result, we are looking forward to expanding our connections.”
The new cohort features several scale-ups within the sector that have demonstrated their credibility as future fintech leaders. As part of the rigorous judging process, companies must be at a stage of development equivalent to seed or Series A, have a product in the market used actively and be headquartered in the UK.
