“In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities, but in the expert’s there are few” Shunryu Suzuki

Motive Labs discovers like a beginner and executes like an expert. We believe in the infinite potential of technology and innovation, we understand the difference between hype and real potential and we rely on best practice and diligence to achieve measurable results.



Our investment and innovation activity is enabled by our partnerships with incumbents, innovators and influencers in the financial services industry. We work closely with them to build, buy and back technology that aligns to what we and our partners perceive as value generating. We do this through various streams of activity that are all focused on making the right connections, at the right time, between the right participants in our ecosystem.
