TORONTO - Oct. 20, 2015 - PRLog -- On October 21-23rd, Ben Zlotnick, CEO and Founder of INcubes (http://incubes.ca)—Toronto based tech-startup accelerator—will be joining Mayor John Tory to London, UK on a mission to promote Toronto as a hotbed for FinTech innovation.

INcubes has created the opportunity for five Toronto based tech-startups to join the Mayor on his first mission outside of Canada. The companies are Nymi (https://www.nymi.com/), Wealthsimple (https://www.wealthsimple.com/), SecureKey Technologies (http://securekey.com/), Kooltra (http://www.kooltra.com/), and Borrowell (https://www.borrowell.com/).

INcubes, along with London & Partners (http://www.londonandpartners.com) and UK Trade & Investment (https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/uk-trade-investment) have arranged multiple events and meetings, as well as with Level 39 (http://www.level39.co/), Europe’s largest tech accelerator for finance, retail, and cybersecurity, which is part of INcubes International Exchange Program (mailto:http://incubes.ca/international-partners/). The five startups will be meeting with Startups from across London for a soft landing opportunity in the UK.

The Mayor and Ben Zlotnick will be joined by fellow councilor Michael Thompson, chair of Toronto’s economic development committee, Michael Williams, and president and CEO of Toronto Financial Services Alliance, Janet Ecker.

“London is a global financial powerhouse regarded by many as the cross of the world, and with this business mission I hope to broaden existing business relationships and facilitate new investment opportunities,” said Mayor Tory. “Toronto and London share many priorities as large urban centres, like the growing demand for transportation and transit networks. I hope to gain insight into how their transportation planning and their experience with London’s Crossrail construction can benefit our city.”

“We are honoured to be working with the Mayor and his office on his first mission to not only promote Toronto’s financial technology cluster but also to learn from the success of our counterparts in the UK,” said Ben Zlotnick.

INcubes has been a champion of the developing FinTech sector in Toronto since 2012. Toronto is a natural hub for the commercialization of financial technologies and INcubes is proud to be a key partner in establishing the bridge between these two clusters.
