We are proud to announce that Millicent has been selected for Tech Nation’s Fintech 5.0 cohort!

Funded by the UK Government’s Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport, and built from a decade of supporting scale-ups — including 30% of all UK unicorns — Tech Nation is the UK’s pre-eminent growth platform for tech companies and leaders.

Fuelling the growth of game-changing leaders and scaling companies so they can positively transform societies and economies, Tech Nation’s alumni include some of the world’s most successful fintechs like Revolut, (Transfer)Wise, Monzo, Starling Bank and a host of other household names.

Tech Nation catalyses the 21st century infrastructure that accelerates the entire ecosystem, bringing together a network of purposeful founders and philanthropists, progressive enterprises and policymakers, influential funds and institutions in order to collaborate in building the technological innovation that will improve the future for the UK and beyond.

The Fintech programme is tailor-made to support founders and the wider leadership team for UK fintech and insurtech companies. This year’s cohort features companies, like Millicent, at the cutting-edge of fintech innovation working to transform all areas of the finance sector; from insurance and investment, to blockchain and digital assets.

Jelena Ewart, co-founder of Upside Partners and Fintech 5.0 judge, said: “If the last few years have taught us anything, it’s that our ideal future isn’t going to just build itself. It was refreshing to see so many companies with real potential to empower us to lower the cost of our dreams and to contribute towards a world that truly values us. This isn’t just finance imbued with modern tech; it’s the start of a fintech uprising built by the people for the people!

Jelena’s statement rings true with Millicent’s mission of delivering a more open, accessible, and equitable financial system to everyone, everywhere, and we couldn’t be more excited to join the ranks of Tech Nation — or for what’s to come in the future!
