Bristol TechFin at FCA TechSprint

Over the past 6 months we’ve been working with tech companies and partner organisations to develop a TechFin cluster in the region. Part of that activity has been supporting the awareness of the Bristol tech scene with leading organisations outside Bristol, including the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) as part of their Project Innovate. Through those conversations, we were invited to participate in their recent TechSprint over 2 days at PwC in London.

Below is a short video of what happened.

We didn’t win any prizes but we did haveĀ a fantastic time working with some great developers and mental health experts. It also provided a huge validation to some of the ideas that we’d previously developed as part of a discovery workshop within the cluster.

The conversations we started in London are continuing and we’re planning on more activities in the West of England to capitalise on the unique technical and ethical perspectives that we have.
