We are delighted to announce that Griffin has been selected to join Fintech 4.0, a Tech Nation programme which aims to accelerate the growth of successful UK scaleups in the financial services industry. Now in its fourth year, the Fintech programme is funded by the UK Government's Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sports, and has an impressive roster of alumni including Bankifi, Nivaura, and tickr.

We are proud to be recognised as a leading new player in the UK’s fintech space, and to be part of a cohort of 22 companies that are making waves in payments, banking, insuretech, and capital markets.

Fintech 4.0 is all about enabling innovation and driving growth. At Griffin, we're also all about enabling others' success and supporting them as they grow.

We're building a bank to serve companies like those in our cohort; to make it faster and easier for them to bring financial products to market or embed them into existing products. We’re also building our platform with scalability as standard, so we can grow with our customers as a long-term partner. Participating in Fintech 4.0 is an invaluable opportunity to share our knowledge and experience, to learn from our peers and from experts in the field, and to gain more insight into where we can really add value.

We're also excited that that the programme has a specific focus on environmental sustainability and operating a net zero business‍—‌a challenge that fast-growing companies can no longer afford to ignore.

"It's our mission to empower the next wave of fintech innovation and this programme is a great opportunity to share knowledge, develop meaningful relationships, and scale our brand in thoughtful way." David Jarvis, Griffin CEO said. "We are particularly excited about Fintech 4.0's commitment to support scaleups developing net zero and D&I strategies early."

Being part of Fintech 4.0 is also one of the best ways Griffin can contribute to building a thriving fintech ecosystem in the UK and across the globe.

We’re building banking infrastructure to power the future of finance and to help cement the UK’s position as global fintech leader‍—‌and that's why we're delighted to be part of the community that’s driving the next wave of financial innovation with big ideas and ambitious business models.

We’re grateful to Tech Nation for giving us the opportunity to talk shop with some of the best minds and brightest talents in our industry and we’re hopeful that the next six months will open doors for ongoing collaboration and future partnerships.
