Fintech Bridge – Ireland and Canada
November 30, 2021 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm AST
With special thanks to the Canadian Trade Commissioner Service and the support of the Embassy of Canada to Ireland, Fintech Ireland is delighted to host another excellent Fintech Bridge Event, this time with Canada.
Following hot on the heels of the Release of the famous Fintech Ireland maps on Thursday 18th November 2021, we get to take a deeper look at fintech in Canada and Ireland and the opportunity for the industry in each other’s country.
Did you know that Canada’s GDP at USD $1.65tn is almost four times that of Ireland at $420bn. Canada provides Irish fintech, regtech and finserv with an excellent opportunity to scale their businesses in North America, while Ireland provides these Canadian businesses with an European beachhead to access both a local population of 5mn and 27 EU Member States.
Did you know that:
- there are more that 350+ fintechs operating from Ireland locally and scaling internationally.
- more than 100 Irish tech start-ups together raised a record €932m in the first half of 2021 from venture capital, debt finance, grants and crowdfunding.
- Canadian FinTech sector is poised to grow further in 2021 following $700m of investments in Q1 2021, led by deals in Toronto.
- Companies based in Toronto raised half of the 10 largest FinTech deals in Canada.
