October 2017: We’re Expanding To New York!
As I write this, I’m in my hotel room looking out at the Statue of Liberty – that colossal neoclassical sculpture on Liberty Island in New York Harbor. Today it is an icon of freedom and of the United States, and a welcoming sight to immigrants arriving from abroad.
Next year, we will be the foreigners setting up in New York as we expand our LATTICE80 fintech hub to the U.S. — coming from Asia with the promise of innovation and new ideas for this city that has played such a crucial role in world affairs and history.
I’ve just been in Abu Dhabi, too, where Gina and I were speakers at the ADGM Fintech Summit, a government-organised event that drew delegates from across the globe. It’s great to see the explosion of fintech in the Middle East, and I look forward to returning regularly to check on the state of progress.
Wishing you all a fantastic month ahead as we go into November.
