From their base in Dogpatch Labs Ulster Bank is perfectly positioned to engage directly with the FinTech community.
They create events that encourage collaboration, discussion and development opportunities between individuals in the industry, with several exciting events already in the pipeline for 2016. Hackathons, Fireside Chats and tech talks are just some of the gatherings they have pioneered, attracting a wide range of attendees.
Ireland is renowned for being an industry leader in the world of technology, and Ulster Bank is looking to harness this home grown talent and continue to grow the flourishing FinTech industry. They believe real time, face to face interaction with like-minded individuals and companies is vital to cultivating new ideas in the burgeoning FinTech sector, with Robin commenting that “peer connect is a big thing and not just within the financial services sector, but within tech as a whole.”
