About this event

In September we're very excited to welcome Jason Maude to Startup Grind Bournemouth. Jason is Chief Technology Advocate of Starling Bank and will be talking to us about the growth of Starling Bank and the future of fintech and banking more broadly. We’ll talk about how Starling Bank see themselves as a technology business that happen to have a banking license rather than just a bank with an IT department and why their technology is what differentiates them from their competition. Jason joined the team at Starling Bank almost three years ago and since then, the business has grown in headcount by 10x. We’ll discuss the realities of rapid growth in a technology business and how Starling Bank are projected to reach profitability next year. Jason will also give us some insight into the state of mobile banking today and what the future holds for banking and financial technology businesses more broadly.

In this interactive chat, Jason will talk about:

How Starling Bank started

Why their technology is what differentiates them

The realities of rapid growth

Fintech now and in the future
