London, 30 April 2019 – Hogan Lovells is kicking off year three of its Global FinTech Mentor and Momentum Program as it announces the first three members of the 2019-20 intake.

  • dozens:  a mobile banking and wealth management provider
  • Youtility: a money and budgeting app that brings home finances into one place, allowing users to budget, compare, switch and pay providers all in-app.

The Program is open to FinTechs at any stage of development, from start-ups to more established players looking for growth and new markets. Interested firms are welcome to apply throughout 2019.

Successful applicants will be assigned a dedicated relationship manager who will guide them through the suite of support options offered by Hogan Lovells to ensure they receive maximum value from their membership of the Program. To help with this, the £25,000 of free advice is provided at discounted rates.

Commenting, Hogan Lovells Head of FinTech and Innovation Emily Reid said:
