honcho named on Tech Nation Fintech Programme 2019

We are incredibly proud to today announce that we’ve been included in the Tech Nation Fintech Programme 2019. Read on to find out more.

Tech Nation is the UK Government’s network for ambitious tech entrepreneurs, supported by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport. Each year Tech Nation accepts a small number of high-growth tech companies onto their acceleration programmes, and we are delighted to have been named as part of their 2019 Fintech cohort.

With only 23 companies on the programme and having been through a highly-contested entry and selection process, honcho sits in very exclusive company. Participation in the programme will give us access to expertise from many of the country’s most talented and successful fintech entrepreneurs as we, alongside the other organisations on this year’s programme, get involved in key topics such as scaling challenges, partnerships with incumbents, regulations and international expansion.

Commenting on the inclusion, honcho CEO Gavin Sewell said:

The entire honcho team are so pleased and proud that we have been included in the 2019 Tech Nation Fintech Programme. For us, this is great recognition of the disruption potential that honcho is bringing to the UK insurance market, and on our potential to significantly scale beyond our startup roots and into a major financial services provider.

Gaining access to insight and expertise from those who’ve already successfully grown fintechs is a money-can’t-buy opportunity, and we can’t wait to get started.
