As we’re moving into spring (hopefully with weather to reflect that!), I thought we’d look back on the first few months of 2016, and what we’ve been up to here at Ormsby Street.
We kicked off the year winning a place on Everline’s Future 50 Disruptive British Companies list (you can check out their free book here, if you’d like to read more about the companies who were also featured, such as Design My Night and Honest Brew).
In March, we headed off to SXSW Interactive in Austin, Texas where we were showcasing CreditHQ as part of the UKTI’s Tech Ambassadors programme. Along with listening to some great talks about the future of fintech, we were lucky enough not only to get to see Dan Rather, but our CEO, Martin, got lucky in the ticket lottery and enjoyed an audience with President Obama – quite possibly a once in a lifetime opportunity!
April saw us heading off to Money2020 Europe in Copenhagen with CreditHQ, where we got some great sneak peeks at the companies changing the face of banking and fintech (the highlight had to be Samsung Pay’s vice president, launch the new Samsung phone into a bucket of champagne to prove its waterproof coating does do what it says on the tin (it appeared to survive the dunking, and hopefully didn’t end up in a bag of rice afterwards).
Next month sees us head off to the Barlow Banking Conference in Minneapolis then Finovate Spring in San Jose where we’ll be unveiling some exciting new product features on CreditHQ. Follow us on Twitter or like us on Facebook to keep up-to-date with all our news!
