Last week Tech Nation announced the 23 companies that have made it into the second cohort of their fintech programme. The programme offers a range of support and advice to UK-based fintechs that are in the run-up to or just after getting Series A funding, to help them expand their businesses and move through to the next stage of "scale-up" growth. There are some interesting stats here on the range of verticals and issues the fintechs in the cohort are addressing, as well as the amounts of funding they have already managed to secure - all of which indicates a healthy and diversified fintech scene in the UK despite all the political uncertainty of recent months. Congratulations to all the new cohort: these are the ones to watch.
