Nicola Horlick, a former investment banker turned high-profile player in the peer-to-peer (P2P) lending market, is the headline speaker for the breakfast event.
The 'superwoman' will be joined by entrepreneur Adam Ward, who is the co-founder and CEO of Airtime Rewards.
The Manchester and London-based company has developed a mobile loyalty app which rewards users with money off their mobile phone bill as they shop at selected retailers.
It has recently raised £1 million from investors, including £750,000 from NPIF – Maven Equity Finance, part of the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund managed by Maven Capital Partners.
Also speaking at our breakfast event this summer will be Muhammad Asim, CEO of Marq Millions (which trades under the Arro Money brand); Tim Kimball, chief technology officer at Aire Labs, a credit assessment service; and John Battersby, head of communications and policy at P2P lender RateSetter.
