Cluster Strategy
Mission/Objectives: 

The Fintech Corridor is the primary cross-border cluster on the Island of Ireland. We are the driving force in developing, collaborating, facilitating and promoting the region from Dublin to Belfast to start or expand in fintech, and as a gateway for Fintech companies to Europe, whilst connecting EU&UK fintech. We have a keen focus on innovation and growth within finance and technology spaces and continue to pioneer a vision for the region, together with the opportunity to streamline and drive engagement between EU & UK.  We see immense opportunity to engage with companies from start up to multinational, and to ignite opportunities and collaborations across the island, which will ultimately benefit the region and its members.

Through our businesses and partner organisations, and our all-island economic development focus and by demonstrating and promoting the benefits of the cross-border region we aim to grow and scale organisations in fintech and become an integral part of fintech within the EU and UK. 

TFC has an established membership of Brand Ambassadors, you can connect and engage with a range of recognised like-minded  industry leaders with reciprocal relationships, who share a passion and willingness to be involved in projects, provide coaching and mentoring support about fintech’s and the services TFC provide. 

Within our accessible and resourceful representatives we collaborate with universities North and South – positioning TFC to connect businesses to universities that offer more courses online and apprenticeship opportunities, gaining valuable skills that will not only help those in Fintech find employment but allows consideration for alternative career’s and innovative business ideas.

We are dedicated to growing and scaling our network, and encourage all fintechs to contribute to our ecosystem.
