Mark Walker

Co-founder & COO & Editorial Director
The Fintech Power50, The Fintech Times

An experienced technologist, my early corporate successes led me to form my own enterprise software company, producing and selling to Universities and institutions. A hands-on role, I executed this idea from concept to maturity, while also leading the international development for an advanced engineering company before its M&A. 
I’m a former Senior Adviser at UK trade & investment, where I used my time to build contacts in technology, IoT and Smart cities sectors, as well as the investment and accelerator environment. Managing a team of seven, my role facilitated a good understanding of the London technology environment. I then continued my passion for supporting Start-up and Scale-up organisations by joining London & Partners as Head of Financial Services & Business Technology. I also led the Mayor’s international business programme for the technology & urban sector. 
Having stepped back into the private sector, I’ve continued supporting ideas, Start-ups and Scale-ups with several of my own investments and ventures, including working with an amazing co-founder on an exclusive Fintech accelerator programme, The Fintech Power50, and running the Operations & Editorial functions at The Fintech Times, a global multimedia news outlet centred around the world’s first leading Fintech newspaper.
