We have a unique convening power to shape the direction of innovation, both in technology and where wider issues persist in the market. A key element of our innovation toolkit that's enabled us to achieve this is the TechSprint.

TechSprints help develop technology-based ideas or proof of concepts to address specific industry challenges. These events help us to shine a light on issues and expand the discussion and awareness of potential solutions.

Evolution of TechSprints

We published research in 2020 exploring the lessons we've learned from hosting 7 TechSprints across a range of subjects. As part of our commitment to foster innovative and collaborative global financial markets, we want to share our experience, and support other organisations in their efforts to address key industry problems.
