Astrid Ayel

Knowledge Transfer Manager - Blockchain & Fintech

I am part of the Digital team at Innovate UK KTN, using my background in mathematics and data science to help Blockchain and FinTech organisations connect to relevant sectors of the industry and academia to grow their project.

I help organisations access funding opportunities to accelerate ideas into real-world solutions. I support organisations involved in Blockchain, Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT), Fintech, Financial Services, Banking, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Data, Legaltech/ Law tech, Insurtech and Accountancy tech – across varied sectors including Digital & Creative, Robotics & AI, Manufacturing, Construction, Infrastructure, Health and AgriFood.

I lead on the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund Next Generation Services Programme, which supports Artificial Intelligence innovative businesses developing solutions for the Accountancy, Insurance and Legal services sectors. As part of the programme, I run AI for Services, a UK wide network bringing together Data and Artificial Intelligence businesses and academics with professionals working in the high value service sectors.

Before joining KTN in 2015, I worked in the innovation management team at MasterCard, delivering innovative digital solutions for retail loyalty schemes across Europe.
