On 17 May, around 130 developers and entrepreneurs from the London FinTech community gathered for the Apps Alliance Meetup: The Role of Mobile in the FinTech Revolution. The meetup, which was hosted at WeWork Spitalfields, was organized in cooperation with Visa Europe Collab and welcomed app developers, mobile tech startups and entrepreneurs to discuss if and how FinTech mobile apps are disrupting traditional banking and focus on the future of financial services as a whole.

Guests arrived at the fabulous new French restaurant Kinship, where they enjoyed delicious food and drinks, and some of them remained behind for a “speakeasy” after-party in the Alliance’s office upstairs — accessible via the back fire escape.
