What is the next big thing set to change the payments industry? In our exciting, energy–packed Payments Dragons' Den we invited four up-and-coming companies to showcase their financial services products and programmes, set to revolutionise how people move, manage and spend their money.

Each of the pitchers was put through their paces by our five expert Dragons with questions aiming to tease out any faults in products and business plans.

The 2016 Payments Dragons:

John Hammond, CCO, Currency Cloud
Mark Beresford, Director, Edgar Dunn and Company
David Parker, Founder and CEO, Polymath Consulting
Brian Dunne, MD, SVM Europe Ltd and Président, IMA Europe
Edwina Johnson, COO, Startupbootcamp


Dragons' Den Winner #showname

Our judges has a tough job choosing a winner following four fantastic pitches in the Den. After much deliberation and an audience vote, Divido were announced as the 2016 Payments Dragons' Den winners. 

Divido lets customers spread the cost of any purchase over a period of time while the merchant gets paid in full right away.

Divido just awarded a £200k grant from Innovate UK for the way they are disrupting the consumer finance market. On our board we have the Chief Risk Officer from Barclays and the Chief Product Officer from WorldPay.

The event has been very, very good, with strong representation across multiple industries. The highlight for me has been meeting suppliers who have differing solutions and expertise. I have done plenty of networking. It’s overall worth visiting.
