TechHub, a European community and workspace for tech entrepreneurs, has moved into North America to help UK and European businesses take on the US market.
The newly-launched TechHub Boston “will provide technology entrepreneurs with a supportive, collaborative environment of like-minded teams working exclusively on tech products,” announced the start-up network.
“TechHub membership tackles the isolation entrepreneurs can feel starting their own businesses, and helps them to learn more about investment opportunities, advances in technology and enhancing their commercial skills.”
Elizabeth Varley, founder and global chief executive officer (CEO) of TechHub added: “Our vision is to provide strategic locations for technology entrepreneurs around the world. There’s no doubt that London has become Europe’s leading place for technology innovation.
“But as our start-ups grow, they often look towards the States for its large market of early adopters and investment expertise to boost their growth. With 53 higher education institutions in Boston and a venture capital [VC] community twice the size of its European equivalent, we already have TechHub members excited about how TechHub Boston can help them straight away.
“We believe that collaboration between London and Boston will add significant value to both startup communities. Boston has historically been hugely successful as a place to build enterprise startups, with London’s Tech City driven by its creative community, so there’s real opportunity for TechHub members in London and Boston to learn from each other.”
Far and away, the largest financial market on the planet is the foreign exchange currencies market, where on average individuals and organisations trade more than $5 trillion daily. In the FX world, the ability to master the market isn't considered a luxury for treasury officers–it's a necessity.
Apps are a critical part of treasury's shift into mobile banking as 67% of treasury and corporate finance professionals said mobile banking services are of particular interest to them in a recent survey.
The fact that the world’s biggest technology firms are branching out into the physical world is a huge opportunity for traditional business models, said inspirational speaker Laurent Haug told treasurers at the BNP Paribas Cash Management University.
It’s no secret that technology is rapidly changing the face of treasury. Joseph Reger, fellow and chief technical officer in EMEIA at Fujitsu, believes that 2018 will be a coming of age for both artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things (IoT).
