Enjoy dinner drinks and a chance to meet…
Sophie Hossack is Director of Strategic Partnerships at Receipt Bank, the disruptive, paperless bookkeeping platform. Founded in 2010, the Receipt Bank founders decided there must be a better way to track business expenses and share them with your accountant. 150m receipts, bills and bank statements later, Receipt Bank now connects accountants, bookkeepers and businesses to unlock the value of accounting data. They have a global team of 450 staff and have raised £65m in funding. Sophie led Receipt Bank's international expansion into Australia for 5 years and will be sharing all on scaling globally and the challenges that come with international expansion.

This dinner is perfect for…
Startup founders, CEOs and senior management looking at scaling internationally or professionals working in the fintech sector.

✓ Common pitfalls and tips to avoid them!
✓ Developing a new country team and instilling that same company culture.
