Innovate events

We regularly organise events to raise awareness of the services available, provide support to innovators and discuss emerging trends in the sector.

Innovation Hub events include:

  • roundtables that focus on the Innovation Hub and the FCA and ask for feedback on how we can improve our operations
  • surgeries that provide support to businesses experiencing specific and common issues working with the regulatory framework, including Q&A sessions to explore problems and coaching sessions to educate attendees
  • thematic workshops that draw on industry expertise to discuss emerging trends in the sector and consider potential impact from a regulatory perspective.

We are also often invited to events – such as workshops, roadshows, roundtables, conferences and panel sessions – hosted by other organisations that support innovation in financial services. If you would like to invite us to attend your event, please contact [email protected].

If you would like to invite us to speak at your event, please fill in our speaker request form. Ensure you mention the innovate team on the form.

Regional regulatory surgeries

The 15 minute regulatory surgery sessions are aimed at innovative firms who want to speak to us about specific regulatory issues or questions they face, which could act as a precursor to applications for formal support via the our Innovate Direct Support or Sandbox team.
