Legal Geek Mentoring Programme with Ivy Wong
The Legal Geek Mentorship Programme has been connecting mentors and mentees across the legal industry since 2017. The fantastic Ivy Wong has been spearheading this initiative since the start. We’ve just finished our fourth cohort and are so excited to speak to her and find out what she’s been up to and get the latest on the programme.

FinTech is easy to define: any technology that seeks to improve, enable and/or automate the delivery and use of financial services. But the precise origin of this portmanteau word is hard to pinpoint: Wells Fargo became the first bank to offer online accounts in 1995, PayPal launched in 1999, and Zopa became the world’s first peer-to-peer lending company in 2005 – regularly cited as a pivotal FinTech event.
