Slaughter and May, the international law firm, today announces that applications for the second cohort of Fintech Fast Forward, its fintech entrepreneurs programme, are now being accepted.

The firm is looking for a further five UK-based, technology-driven businesses to each receive £30,000 of value add services. In March this year, the firm announced the first five companies selected to join the programme: Enforcd, Garrison, Just Miles, Tide and WorldRemit.

The latest application round, which closes on Monday 2 October, is open to any UK-based start-up or high growth company operating in fintech, insurtech, regtech, datatech, legal tech, DLT, data analytics and AI or similar fields.

“In the first round we received over 25 applications to join the programme and we were delighted to welcome Enforcd, Garrison, Just Miles, Tide and WorldRemit to Fintech Fast Forward” said Rob Sumroy, partner at Slaughter and May.

Ben Kingsley, partner at Slaughter and May, added: “We have greatly enjoyed working with the initial cohort and we look forward to continuing to work alongside them as we now look for another group of innovative and entrepreneurial companies to join the programme.”

Jane Walshe, CEO at Enforcd, said: “We joined Fintech Fast Forward at a critical time for us as a business. The Slaughter and May team really understood our needs and the ecosystem, provided first rate legal advice and made us feel supported. I would highly recommend Fintech Fast Forward to any other tech start-up.”
