Mission/Objectives: 

The Fintech Corridor is responsible and committed to facilitating business needs and creating skilled jobs within the region between Dublin and Belfast, and to making TFC an integral part of the fintech community in the EU and UK, through our businesses and partner organisations, and our all-island economic development focus. By demonstrating and promoting the benefits of the cross-border region we aim to grow and scale organisations in fintech. TFC will be the driving force in developing, collaborating with members, and promoting the benefits of locating within the region, and supporting the people and organisations to meet their business needs, enhance skills and focus on the key elements to achieve their growth targets.

Previously known as the M1 Payments Corridor, a concept developed by members of the Mill Enterprise Hub Drogheda.

TFC Brand Ambassadors and Advisory Board members are a large group of recognised industry leaders with reciprocal relationships, who share a passion and willingness to be involved in projects, provide coaching and mentoring support about fintech’s and the services TFC provide. We connect and introduce you to founders, leaders, institutions, potential partners and other key individuals in Fintech.

Within our accessible and resourceful representatives we collaborate with universities North and South – positioning TFC to connect businesses to universities that offer more courses online and apprenticeship opportunities, gaining valuable skills that will not only help those in Fintech find employment but allows consideration for alternative career’s and innovative business ideas and direct information on R&D sector access. By becoming a member you will receive alerts about workshops, invitations to events and programmes and exclusive networking opportunities.

We are continually driving development, collaboration and promoting the benefits of the region, and developing our competitive advantage and creating a strong profile to showcase our services.
