The Payments Accelerator at PayExpo Europe is a hub for start-ups, investors, accelerators, and innovators.

It offers a platform for FinTech start-ups to develop the business connections they need and to showcase their innovative products and services.

With the big event on the horizon, Michael Seaman commented, “We are delighted to announce that leading FinTech law firm Addleshaw Goddard will be sponsoring the payments accelerator in 2017 via their FinTech programme AG Elevate.”

Having gotten its start back in November 2016, with an initial investment of £500,000, AG Elevate is a rapid 12 month program to guide ambitious FinTechs in their development. It will service ‘early-stage’ start-ups with no more than one million in investment and FinTechs with funding of more than £1million.

Fiona Ghosh, head of Addleshaw Goddard’s Fintech’s Group, said: “Our AG Elevate team is well-placed to offer collaborative, responsive advice ranging from general commercial guidance and support to more technical legal advice. We are one of the first law firms to collaborate with Fintechs in this way and we are really looking forward to working with the selected organisations that are part of The Payment Accelerator at PayExpo Europe, as they all have their own distinctive opportunities for growth.”

The future is bright with PayExpo Europe 2017 set to feature some revolutionary payment models.
