Call for Participation
Thank you for considering participation in our project. We are conducting a survey of Fintech firms in the UK and India to understand entrepreneurial ecosystems, in order to enhance opportunities for development and success of start-ups and established companies. The survey will be in the form of an interview using a semi-structured questionnaire. The interview can be conducted in-person or online via virtual conferencing with our research team. You can book a slot with our team on this link here.
All information collected during the interview will adhere with General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and will be kept strictly confidential and anonymised and will not be used without your prior consent. We would be grateful for your participation in our survey and look forward to hearing about your experiences and insights about the fintech ecosystem in UK.
We are planning to organise a series of conferences, workshops and networking events titled “Borderless Ecosystems” with the aim of bringing together investors, incubators, and entrepreneurs in UK and India. Our survey respondents will be offered the opportunity to participate in these events. The insights and recommendations from this study will inform policy makers in UK, India and beyond to enhance a more supportive environment for entrepreneurships.
