Our Story

Previously known as the M1 Payments Corridor, a concept developed by members of the Mill Enterprise Centre, the initial goal was to facilitate the Northeast region in the Republic of Ireland by adding value to the concentration of ePayments and transaction companies within the region.

With finance and technology at the heart of every company, we’re proud to support and develop an innovative and collaborative programme within the fintech industry.

After a recent rebrand to ‘The Fintech Corridor’ we continue to pioneer a vision, and with our unique opportunity to collaborate between the north and south of the island while focusing on the wider aspects of developing partnerships and positioning the Dublin to Belfast region as the most attractive and accessible location for Fintech on the island and as a gateway for fintech companies to Europe, whilst connecting EU&UK fintech

TFC will be the driving force in developing and collaborating with members, promoting the benefits of locating anywhere along the corridor, supporting people and organisations to meet their business needs and enhance skills and focus on the key elements to achieve their growth targets.
