Louise Smith, fintech envoy for Scotland and head of design in personal and business banking at RBS said:

“I’m thrilled to see two Edinburgh start-ups have been chosen to join the first ever Tech Nation Fintech Programme. After London, Scotland turns out the most fintech related graduates in the UK – 12% of the annual pool of 97,000 graduates.”

The new programme will take all participants through a 24-hour induction series of in-depth learning sessions, networking events and a three-day international showcase trip, where they will become part of the first ever Tech Nation Fintech cohort.

Commenting upon the programme, Venture Capitalist and Chair of Tech Nation, Eileen Burbidge said;

“The UK is an acknowledged world leader in fintech but having this programme, endorsed by HM Treasury, will help the UK to further accelerate the development of the sector. The calibre of applications for the Tech Nation Fintech programme was incredibly impressive with a wide breadth of various business models. The companies chosen have already demonstrated that they are winners and will certainly have many more successes to come.”

Having recently grown the company in preparation for the customer facing product launch, Co-Founder and CEO Loral Quinn, was delighted to have been selected;

“We’re delighted that Sustainably has been selected for its excellent value proposition and scaling potential, to participate in Tech Nations first ever Fintech Growth Programme. We can’t wait to get in front of the amazing judges, mentors and advisors, to help us learn, partner and grow.”

The programme starts mid-September with all those involved meeting for the opening seminar.
