Innovate Finance is the industry body for UK fintech, accelerating the evolution of financial services. The organisation is reshaping financial services globally – from start-ups and scale-ups to global corporates and established institutions.

Innovate Finance is amplifying the reach of fintech and showcasing innovation by connecting regulators, financial services firms and government, both in the UK and internationally. It is helping to create a global financial services sector that is more transparent, more sustainable and more inclusive.


Seven Hills has worked with Innovate Finance since 2015, helping to deliver all aspects of its flagship event during UK FinTech Week – the Innovate Finance Global Summit (IFGS). At the annual Summit, a packed agenda features leading CEOs, industry experts and government ministers, resulting in top tier coverage across the key new outlets.

Beyond supporting the work on the Summit, Seven Hills also leads a comprehensive press agenda for Innovate Finance, positioning its CEO Janine Hirt as one the most prominent commentators on the UK’s fintech scene.

“Innovate Finance would like to see a more diverse Fintech Industry in terms of gender, ethnicity, and social-economic background. This would not only be important in terms of inclusion but also help to address talent shortages.” – Forbes
