About the course

Develop your fintech business concept to successfully take to market

Fintech is changing the terms, fate and futures for financial services – pushed by next generation fintech and blockchain ventures.

This new 4 day programme in Oxford is a hands-on, in-person experience exclusively for alumni of our Online Oxford Fintech and Blockchain Strategy Programmes.

Designed to help you crystallise the concept for your fintech venture, develop your strategy to successfully take it to market and maximise your impact, you will accelerate your strategic thinking and ability, and apply practical techniques to your current and potential future projects. Interact personally with David Shrier and other renowned fintech leaders, whilst refining your project and business model as part of a pre-qualified group from around the world.

You will:

  • align the vision for your fintech venture with latest industry trends
  • develop the strategic narrative of your venture
  • explore strategic partnerships to drive revenue or investment
  • re-engage among your online programme team, Oxford experts and other entrepreneurs to make ready your venture project
  • expand your skills pitching, financing and growing your new enterprise, whether it is inside an established business or represents an independent start-up
  • join a further online 'check-in' session led by David Shrier and Marc Ventresca

This is the next step to enable you to bring your fintech business to life.
