What participants said

“The AFTP was such a great opportunity for me. It introduced me to FinTech, which was very obscure to me at the time, and it helped me to comprehend it better.

The team behind the AFTP made heterogenous teams with various countries and degrees within them. Also, after winning the first edition, the society brought us to Castlight Financial in Glasgow for an insight day, which led me to get an internship there this summer.

I strongly recommend students from any field to participate, it’s a really good experience to meet new people and gain or improve numerous skills such as teamwork, eloquence, being proactive!”

I appreciated the opportunity of having a mentor from great organisation, who were able to give relevant advice and interesting insights into their FinTech contexts.
Project Participant
From my point of view as an engineering student it is the type of project that I usually would not be exposed to. I feel the experience has added an extra dimension to my skills that I might not otherwise have.
Project Participant
Judges and guests from different companies were invited and it was a great opportunity to network with them.
