BNP Paribas hosts AI speed networking event in Birmingham
BNP Paribas Personal Finance UK is revamping its approach to innovation and technology collaboration. In partnership with SuperTech, an organisation dedicated to fostering tech innovation in the West Midlands, BNP Paribas Personal Finance UK is hosting the Connector Series event. This event, scheduled for Wednesday, October 18th, from 9:30 am to 12:00 pm at iCentrum Birmingham Innovation Campus, offers a unique opportunity for fintechs and tech businesses specialising in AI.
During this event, participating companies will engage in a high-impact speed networking session. Notably, they will have exclusive access to key executives from various departments within the personal finance company, including risk, finance, and marketing. This interaction will enable discussions on harnessing the power of AI to accelerate the company’s transformation initiatives.
Furthermore, tech firms attending the event will have the chance to establish connections with potential future collaborators. They can also enhance their visibility within the West Midlands’ tech ecosystem and gain valuable insights into AI-based solutions to inform the development of their own business solutions. This event marks a significant step forward in fostering innovation and collaboration in the finance and tech sectors.
But that’s not the end of the good news – participation in this event comes at no cost for businesses. The only commitment required is your time and enthusiasm.
This event builds upon the success of BNP Paribas Personal Finance UK’s initial collaboration with SuperTech. During their first programme, they successfully implemented digital solutions to address intricate challenges related to data visualisation, automated underwriting, and chatbots in close partnership with fintech companies. This track record of achievements underscores the value of such collaborations and the potential for innovative solutions in the fintech sector.
Commenting on the Connector Series event, Chief Customer Officer at BNP Paribas Personal Finance, Richard Newland, said: “We are delighted to be part of the innovation ecosystem here in the West Midlands and we’re especially delighted to be partnering with SuperTech during Birmingham Tech Week for an AI speed-networking event.

Commenting on the announcement, Hilary Smyth-Allen, Executive Lead at SuperTech, added: “All the evidence shows that innovation best practise, particularly around building an innovative culture, requires businesses to actively make time to explore beyond their boundaries. With this purposefully designed event in Birmingham Tech Week, BNP Paribas Personal Finance UK is making this happen in a way that is equally valuable for both the company and the participating SMEs.”
