ditto is... having FinTech fun after dark

When we aren’t in our Clerkenwell studio helping businesses disrupt and advance, you can bet we are out and about in London at a city event.

Last week we had the pleasure of being guests at FinTech insider presents: AfterDark #FINInTheSun produced by 11:FS. The event was packed without a spare seat in the house, as guests eagerly anticipated the hour-long panel discussion dissecting the big headlines in the Financial and Technology world.

Before and after the panel discussion WeWork’s Devonshire Square courtyard was filled with innovators and disruptors, as the city’s FinTech community gathered to network and chat over cold beverages and tasty food - all under the East London evening sunshine.
