New videos promote Glasgow as a top fintech hub

Our CEO, Gillian Docherty, features in a series of videos promoting the infrastructure Glasgow has in place to support the growth of financial technology operations.

Gillian takes the lead role in one video dedicated to profiling the work of The Data Lab. In the video, she says, “The Data Lab delivers activity through collaborative innovation projects, skills and talent programmes and community building. The pace of technology innovation is only going to increase so it’s really important that we invest and create opportunities for our children and the generations to come”.

The series of videos featuring a range of senior spokespeople from some of Glasgow’s highest profile tech operations, such as Previse and J.P. Morgan, promote Glasgow as a top fintech hub, with a connected ecosystem that supports growth, quality workspace and great networking opportunities. Glasgow’s imminent status as one of the largest full fibre metro cities in the world plus the exciting new talent pipeline being developed by the city’s three universities are also supporting the growth of fintech in the city.

Where organisations work together in an ecosystem of collaboration, such as you find in this great city, that is when you can deliver more value from data and bring the most social & economic benefits for Scotland.
