We’re thrilled to be returning to Xerocon London 2018 after the success of last year.

Xero’s event celebrates the latest, greatest innovation in tech for accountants, all with an eye to making finance easier for small business owners. You could easily have mistaken last year’s fixture for a festival; a surprise percussion opening; a stellar afterparty (which would make any events committee proud); fireworks at the award ceremony. On top of all this, we’re still chuffed that iwoca received the coveted award for Emerging App Partner of the Year. 

We partnered with Xero in March 2017. Our partnership helps hundreds of accountants who want to offer a frictionless finance solution to their clients, because we’re fully integrated with Xero. With just a few clicks, accountants can link their client’s Xero data to iwoca, so they can apply for a credit line with speed and ease.

Last year was our first Xerocon, and it’s safe to say we fell in love with the atmosphere. One of the highlights was seeing Colin Goldstein, our Commercial Growth Director, speaking on the Frictionless Finance panel.

‘For us, it’s about using technology to break down those barriers. Making things simpler for small business owners, so they have more time to run their business.’ Colin Goldstein

This year, we’ve got more in store

On Day 1 this year, our CEO Christoph takes to the stage, on the Innovation in Business Finance panel. He’s set to launch into what Open Banking can do to broaden opportunities for Xero’s customers alongside other industry leaders. The talk starts at 2.30, you don’t want to miss it.

For us, Xerocon is about the people. It’s a fantastic forum to gather accountants, firms and apps together who really care about small business. We get to catch up with our partners, and meet amazing people like Julian Day, from Cambridge-based Day Accountants. Check out this video to see how Day Accountants uses Xero and iwoca to help their small businesses.
