Binance UK Joins the UK’s FinTech Founders Association

The cryptocurrency exchange seeks to continue expanding its partnerships and offerings in Europe after announcing the latest partnership with the not-for-profit organization. 

Binance Expansion

The UK arm of Binance confirmed a new partnership with the UK’s Fintech Founders Group, an independent not-for-profit organization that represents fintech sector entrepreneurs and founders. 

Announced via the Binance blog on May 23rd, Binance UK will be working closely with the organization to foster growth and effective governance models for startups and existing operations. The goal is to promote the overall growth of the blockchain ecosystem, and given the natural synergy for businesses in the fintech space, the partnership makes sense. 

“We’re excited to become a partner with the Fintech Founders group, to be a part of this highly influential network, and look forward to supporting the UK’s advancement for fintech companies as well as financial institutions to work together for mutual benefit,” said Ilir Laro, Deputy Head of UK at Binance. 


Binance has been strategically promoting its involvement and operations across Europe recently since announcing operations in France. This has been a strategy Binance CEO CZ has talked about openly since last November 2021, as noted here by BSC NewsChung Yee

The partnership will also bolster support for the non-profit organization in its efforts to assist UK businesses as they navigate the changing crypto landscape. Christian Faes, Founder, and Chair of the Fintech Founders Group, shared his thoughts on the recent partnership with Binance:

“The digital asset sector likely represents the embodiment of the next iteration of the internet as we know it – and Binance has been a global leader and pioneer in this merging sector…our group is really looking forward to the support from Binance and the opportunity to collaborate through this partnership.”

The largest cryptocurrency exchange is expected to grow even further in the coming years with a net worth of more than $92.5 billion back in April—more than the value of its nearest competitor Coinbase.
