Canadian FinTech giant XE announced as ‘Premium Sponsor’ of Newcastle Startup Week / Newcastle Scaleup Summit 2020

We’re delighted to announce that global FinTech giant XE (‘The world’s trusted currency authority’) will be a ‘Premium Sponsor’ of our 4th annual Newcastle Startup Week + Scaleup Summit festival in May 2020.

This follows their recent decision to open a Northern base at the Tuspark Eagle Lab co-working space in Newcastle where we are also based (see ‘Global FinTech giant opens base in Newcastle‘).

Paul Lancaster (Newcastle Startup Week / Plan Digital) said: “Having met Grant Murray (Regional Manager, North at XE) through our Founders’ Friday & Newcastle Startup Week events I’ve loved seeing how enthusiastic & proactive he has been in getting to know some of the key players in the North East business community & it’s hugely exciting to have a company like XE opening a base here & coming onboard as a Premium Sponsor!”

“As the recent FinTech North Conference in Newcastle showed, the North East FinTech community is currently on the rise with some world-class startups, scaleups & enterprise companies already based here & adding’s global expertise & network to the mix is a real vote of confidence for what the region can offer companies wanting to scale their operations in the North of England.”
