Motivated groups at the London School of Economics (LSE) rounded up industry leaders to discuss the UK’s digital economy and consider the path from city employees to global disruption.
Prodigy Finance sponsored the event, “Breaking Barriers: How Digital Leaders Are Driving Disruption,” which took place in April 2016.
LSE students and alumni packed the Hong Kong Theatre in Clement House to listen to a panel discussion before retiring for drinks, canapés, and networking at The Atrium in the Old Building.
Although Prodigy Finance doesn’t currently have a programme with LSE, this event was too important to pass up. It was organised by the LSE Banking and Finance Alumni Group in conjunction with the LSE Alumni Entrepreneurs Group to bring together some of the brightest minds in the industry. It also gave us a chance to hear from some of the other disruptors in the fintech space, especially those working to disrupt traditional lending.
Attendees learned from the experiences and struggles of Zia Yusuf (Velocity), Nikolay Storonsky (Revolut), Jules Coleman (Hassle.com) and Federico Travella (NoviCap) in a conversation chaired by Philip Salter (Director, The Entrepreneurs Network).
