FinVention was a one-day event that aimed to showcase the most innovative technological products and services in the FinTech, digital, creative and start-up sectors in Guernsey. Innovest Advisory supported the pitch of Rise Finance, a new Uganda focused FinTech company which is a social business spin-off of the Guernsey charity, This is Epic.

With nearly two billion people globally living without basic financial services today, Innovest Advisory recognises the importance of harnessing private sector funding and technology to develop innovative solutions to increase financial access. Rise Finance seeks to pilot a digital financial services offering in Uganda as a pathway to financial inclusion for those in extreme poverty building on the 18,000 beneficiaries already supported by This is Epic.
